ACC Behavioral Intervention Team-How You Can Help

How You Can Help

Because you come in frequent contact with many students, you are in an excellent position to observe students, recognize those who are in distress, and offer assistance. Your care, concern and assistance will often be enough to help the student. At other times, you can play a critical role in referring a student for appropriate assistance and in motivating him/her to seek help. Remember the four R’s:

RECOGNIZE     RESPOND     REFER     REPORT

  • Recognize: Be familiar with and acknowledge symptoms of distress.
  • Respond: Privately initiate contact with a student displaying symptoms of distress. Express your concerns in behavioral, non-judgmental terms and listen to the student in a sensitive,non-threatening way.
  • Refer: Know your limits as a help-giver; only go as far as your expertise, training and resources allow. When a student needs more help than you are able or willing to give, it is time to make a referral.
