Crisis & Trauma Management For Students

Sometimes in life, things happen beyond our control.  When these situations are of a critical or traumatic nature, they can have far reaching consequences on us and the organizations we work for.

After a student encounters a crisis or traumatic event, it’s important to take the appropriate steps in a timely manner.  The way individuals cope with crises depends on their own history and prior experiences. Sometimes these traumatic events are so painful that professional assistance may be necessary in order to cope with them.

Aspiria’s 24/7 emergency service provides organizations with security and peace of mind through its direct access to Aspiria’s senior management.  We can work with your organization to develop a customized emergency response program for your student including a response for the community.

Let’s take a look at how our students may experience crises in their lives.  A crisis can be experienced in different ways:

  • They can affect different groups of people such as students or society as a whole. These types of crises could include a strike, assault, physical injury, accident, death, suicide, robbery, homicide, and rape.
  • Or, they could affect a broader spectrum of people; including fire, natural disasters, riots, terrorism and racial incidents.

When dealing with a crisis, people can experience emotional or physical responses, or a combination of both.  In turn, these reactions can have a wide range of implications on someone’s personal and professional life.

Aspiria’s Critical Incident Response Services can assist your students following a crisis or traumatic event.  To learn more about these services, please contact your Account Manager.  For more information on our Student Assistance Program (SAP), please contact us today.
