Creating a “Safe Space”

    • THE SETTING
      • Arrange your office in a supportive and neutral manner:
      • Make sure your magnet or sticker is visible
      • If you have LGBTQ friendly materials have them available and ready

 

 

 Help students define their own issues (feelings, thoughts, ideas)

  • What are the main problems or issues?
  • Are they related to campus, roommate, or home?
  •  Help structure limitations and future relationships

  • REFER!
  • Refer students to appropriate services, counseling center, campus safety, or the Office of Intercultural Affairs.
