The Trauma Response Team (TRT) of the University of Florida is presenting its Fall 2001 workshop on the issue of “How to Handle Disruptive or Difficult Students”. Faculty, staff, graduate assistants, and academic administrators are invited to attend on October 5, 2001 beginning at 8:00 am in room 349 of the J. Wayne Reitz Union. Light refreshments will be served from 8:00 to 8:30 and training will conclude at 11:30 am.

In our interactions with students, we sometimes encounter students who are not coping well with the demands of college life. This training is designed to equip you with skills on how to handle troubled or disruptive students, how to assess the student¹s level of distress and personal safety measures, and how to refer students to available resources on campus and in the community. Time will be provided to discuss concerns and share experiences with others. Please share this information with faculty, staff and graduate assistants in your college or department.

Individuals planning to attend the workshop should RSVP via the TRT web site or by calling the Division of Student Affairs at 392-1265.
