George Washington U. Already Offering Counseling Services to Students to Cope With Election Results

George Washington U. Already Offering Counseling Services to Students to Cope With Election Results

“Sometimes emotional aftershocks or stress reactions appear immediately and some may appear in a few hours or several days/weeks after.”

Does this sound like the behavior of people who believe they’re going to win?

The Daily Caller reports:

‘Emotional Aftershocks’: George Washington University Offers Mental Health Services To Cope With Election Results

George Washington University is encouraging students to seek therapy following the election, while warning students to prepare for Election Day “as you would for a hurricane or a snowstorm,” by encouraging students to stock up on supplies.

In an email sent to students and obtained by the Daily Caller, the D.C. university said counseling and psychological services would be available over the next few weeks and encouraged students to utilize the available services.

“You or your friends may experience a number of reactions following the election,” the email reads. “Having a reaction is both normal and expected. Sometimes emotional aftershocks or stress reactions appear immediately and some may appear in a few hours or several days/weeks after.”

The school is also offering “academic assistance” to students who may face “academic difficulty that may be related to election related activity.”

The university also recommended students “have at least one week of food, supplies and medicine” for their rooms.

“We suggest preparing for the Election Day period as you would for a hurricane or a snowstorm that would prevent you from going outside for several days to grab food or order takeout,” the email read, recommending students stock up on foods that have long shelf lives.

As long as that counseling includes the idea that sometimes you win, and sometimes you lose; and that in the case of loosing, you have to pick yourself up and do something different so you can win next time.
Otherwise it is a furtheration of victimizing the person.

Sometimes emotional aftershocks or stress reactions appear immediately and some may appear in a few hours or several days/weeks after.

“In extreme cases, you may continue to experience these reactions even after your thirteenth birthday.”

Maybe one of those enterprising Texans who decorate vehicles to stalk the Biden Campaign Bus can decal a plow with “Snowflake Removal Team” and drive it around campus.

Those children need to be slapped around.

A charitable interpretation would be that students should prepare for the inevitable rioting and terrorism planned if President Trump wins re-election. That will be stressful, and they’ll need food on hand so they don’t have to go out.

Poor darlings, counsel them, let them take the mark of the beast.

Poor babies. This college is doing a wonderful job of infantilizing their students and helping them to act like spoiled brats.

I wonder how these students will ever cope with anything actually bad that happens to them, like being diagnosed with a disease or losing their job.
