Winter 2020 Training Series

The Survivor Support, Disability Access, Asian and Pacific Islander, Workers’ and Queer Caucuses jointly sponsored a four-part series of trainings in February 2020. The trainings were open to GTFF members as well as campus and local community members.

Crisis Response – Wed., Feb. 12 @ 6pm
Flyer for Crisis Response training with Drew Terhune from Crisis Intervention and Sexual Violence Support Services, held Wednesday Feb. 12 at 6pm in the GTFF office.

Since GEs work more closely with undergrads than faculty or staff do, we are often the first people students go to when looking for help in times of crisis. Join us for this training on how to navigate tough conversations and handle crises in our students’ lives.
