GGC's Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) presents:
Working with Students in Crisis: What Every Instructor Needs to Know 
During a meeting with a student, you raise concerns about her performance on recent tests. The student informs you that she has been having difficulties with depression and feels unmotivated all the time. You notice a scar on her wrist and ask about it. She explains that over the weekend she thought about taking her life and instead cut her wrist to release her feelings. What do you do next?
Difficult situations like these occur frequently between faculty members and their students. A number of emotions, such as feeling scared, worried, or uncertain, can arise and make it hard to know how to best handle things. Our training is aimed at helping faculty members to feel prepared for such situations and to be capable as helpers. We will help you understand how to help students in crisis and know what appropriate steps to take. In this training, faculty members will learn to recognize the warning signs of depression and *******, key guidelines for offering help and hope to students, and knowledge about resources that are available to GGC students and ways to help them connect with these services.
Participants will learn to:

Recognize the warning signs of depression and *******
Inquire about a student's safety
Offer hope and appropriate levels of support
Refer students for additional help on campus

Completion of the course is measured by an in-training role play. A member of the GGC Counseling and Psychological Services will be onsite to consult with and to answer questions.
