It is not unusual for a student to come to school with a history of exposure to a traumatic event in life. This can create a heightened level of anxiety regarding community living in a university living. We have a team that specializes in brief trauma focused therapies in order to meet the needs of these students. The treatment needs are reviewed in an initial assessment with recognition that treatment needs may vary depending upon the acute or chronic nature of the traumatic experience(s) Students in need of long term care may be referred out to a community provider. We encourage you to contact the PCC to discuss potential resource needs.
