Optional Syllabus Language for Courses with Sensitive Content Areas

Should be modified by individual faculty to address specific content areas:

Taking Care of Yourself: In this course, we will be discussing sensitive topics such as trauma, depression, anxiety, sexual assault, addiction, relationship problems, suicide, and other mental health concerns. The course content may elicit strong reactions from some students, and it is understandable that some may feel uncomfortable discussing these issues in class. Although you are not expected to share personal information in class, discussing these issues as a group is unavoidable. Please take the time to care for yourself. If you are struggling with personal issues, or find the content of course overwhelming, please seek assistance at the Eckerd College Counseling Center.
