Counseling center offers help in dealing with catastrophic events
Rowan University's Counseling & Psychological Services Center offers services that can help the University community deal with unexpected reactions and feelings related to catastrophic events, such as the recent deadly earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
According to David Rubenstein, Psy.D., director of the Counseling & Psychological Services Center, catastrophic events can sometimes lead us to have sudden physical, emotional, behavioral and cognitive reactions that are difficult to handle. The center offers supportive services for people who have been impacted by the events or who have family or friends who have been affected.
Counseling services will be available Wednesday through Friday this week from noon-1 p.m. for anyone who needs assistance dealing with the tragedies in Japan.
Students also can visit during regular walk-in hours Monday through Friday from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. The center is located on the top floor of Savitz Hall and can be reached at 856-256-4222. For emergencies after hours, call public safety at 256-4911 and ask for the counselor on call.
