Crises on Campus: Responses and Resources University

Recent events at Virginia Tech and even on our own Georgia College & State University campus have created some interest in learning more about how to spot troublesome behavior and how to respond to crises.
Join a panel of GCSU faculty and staff to discuss signs that may indicate a member of the GCSU community is in crisis and needs intervention. The forum will be held from 12:30 to 1:45 p .m. Monday, Oct. 22 in the banquet room.
Research findings, verbal interventions, campus/community resources, and legal/ethical considerations will be discussed. Learning strategies for this presentation include discussion and group participation via scenarios.
Panelists include: Dr. Mary Jane Phillips, Director, GCSU Counseling Services; Dr. Barbara Funke, Professor of Health Education & Interim Co-Chair, Department of Kinesiology; Dr. Martha Colvin, RN, CNS/PMH, Professor & Chair, Department of Undergraduate Nursing; Scott Butler, Assistant Professor, Health Education, Department of Kinesiology; Shaina McGill, Senior Director for Advising and Retention, Center for Student Success; and Eve Puckett, Assistant Director for Residence Education, University Housing.
