Suggestions for Coping
The university's Office of Human Services has compiled these
suggestions for coping with emotions
raised by the events of Sept. 11 and their aftermath.
Written information from FASAP and WORKLife
The university's Faculty and Staff Assistance Program has
additional information on handling stress and trauma. The
information is available in faxable or downloadable form.
Please call 410-955-1220 or 443-997-3800 and ask for Tips

Trauma/grief support groups
Faculty and Staff Assistance Program counselors are running
two on-going trauma/grief support groups on Fridays in
response to the terrorist attacks. One group will meet on
the East Baltimore campus from 12 noon to 1 p.m. in the
550 Building, Suite 403. The other group will meet at
Eastern High School, Suite C 100, at the same time. Both
groups will meet on a weekly basis. We ask that you
register as space is limited. Those interested in attending
may register by calling Ms. Tovey Dixon at 410-955-1220.
Please indicate if you will be attending the East Baltimore
or Eastern High School group.
