  •  Anger Management/De-escalation

This teaches the RA how to recognize anger as it builds and provides him or her with the means to de-escalate that anger without over reacting and causing more problems.

Violence is almost always preceded by Early Warning Signs that the RA can be taught to identify. Once identified, the RA is equipped to take appropriate action or to refer the individual to a source of help.

  • Critical Disorders

These disorders, that every RA may expect to encounter, include SuicideEating DisordersDepressionAnxiety and Stress.

This Model will ultimately equip the University RA to recognize these emotional issues so that the hall member can receive professional help early and prevent injury or withdrawal from school. When trained the RA will use these skills to prevent personal burnout by being able to identify these traits within themselves and knowing what to do about it.
