Traumatic Events and Stressors in the News

Throughout any semester, your students may be experiencing stress or a trauma response due to heightened coverage of traumatic or stressful events in the news, including these last few weeks. You may be wondering if it is appropriate to address these events with students and how you can do so in a supportive manner. The CFE has a new online resource to help you understand the role of stress and trauma in learning, decide if you should address recent news events, and learn how you can acknowledge these events and support students in accessing the appropriate campus resources.  

For more information, please visit CFE resource webpage Traumatic Events and Stressors in the News.
