HOW TO DEAL WITH DISTRESSED AND/OR DISRUPTIVESTUDENTS
A GUIDE FOR QUEENS COLLEGE Facult & Staff
As a member of the Queens College community you may come into contact with students who are experiencing personal distress or difficulties coping with college. Students may reveal problems to you through personal communication or indirectly by their general behavior. Being aware of distress signals, methods of intervention, and sources of help for the student can help you feel more in control of situations that may arise, and put you in a better position to be helpful.
I hope that the following information is helpful. The College Counseling & Resource Center has a staff of psychologists and counseling professionals who see students for personal, psychological and/or academic counseling. All services are confidential and free of charge. Please feel free to contact me.
