Trauma-Informed Care and Resilience-Oriented Training for Faculty and Staff

A Trauma-Informed Campus is a progressive movement towards understanding trauma through what is called a “trauma-lens”. Creating this shift in thinking from:

“…what is wrong with you?” to “…what happened to you?

can help High Point University holistically serve students who have experienced trauma.  Thanks to a generous donor, the Division of Student Life and the Office of Counseling Services are pleased to bring nationally recognized expert, Dr. Janice Carello, to our faculty and staff to provide a virtual, synchronous training to provide education related to trauma-informed care in higher education.  Please use the QR Code below to register for this special event.  Seating is limited and reservations are required.  Email us for assistance with registration at:  counseling@highpoint.edu
