Over 50% of PSU students report having 4 or fewer drinks each week, if they drink at all.
Fact taken from 2009 NH Higher Education on line Alcohol and Drug Survey at PSU.
The Counseling and Human Relations Center will be offering a War Veterans Group to provide PSU students (and possibly some non-students) who are U.S. military veterans of war an opportunity to address issues of coping, stress management, and the aftereffects of their combat and/or non-combat war experiences with other veterans in a safe, confidential, and supportive environment.
The goals of the group include:
Group facilitators will be Robert Hlasny, Ph.D., and Michael Fischler, Ed.D. The meeting day and time will be determined after considering members’ scheduling needs.
If you know students who are war veterans, would you please encourage them to call the Counseling and Human Relations Center at (603) 535-2461 to schedule an intake assessment to determine if this group might be right for them.
Please be aware that space constraints may limit the size of the group.
While statistics on the incidence/prevalence of students diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome attending universities are not clear, anecdotal evidence seems to indicate that the numbers are rapidly rising. Recently, one of our clients/students brought to our attention the video, “Understanding Asperger’s Syndrome: A College Professor’s Guide.” This video is geared towards faculty and instructors, while a second video, “In My Mind,” is intended to help individuals to better understand the world through the lens of a person experiencing Asperger’s. It is our hope that the videos will support your efforts to better understand and serve this population of students.
If you need additional support/consultation, please don’t hesitate to contact a staff member at The Counseling and Human Relations Center at (603) 535-2461.
