College Offers Students ‘Presidential Debate Support Space’ So They Have A ‘Safe Space’ To Share Feelings About ‘National Events’

Case Western Reserve University, which hosted Tuesday night’s presidential debate between President Donald Trump and Joe Biden in Cleveland, Ohio, opened up a virtual “Presidential Debate Support Space” through the school’s counselor.

School Offers Students ‘Safe Space’ After Debate

The goal of this was to give students the opportunity to share their feelings about “national events” in a “safe space.”

“Support Space is a confidential safe space for students to have open discussions in a group setting, moderated by University Health & Counseling Services clinical staff,” the program’s page stated. “Students can discuss the impact of recent national events, including the presidential debate and upcoming election.”

The page made sure to add that the support space “is not a substitute for psychotherapy and does not constitute mental health treatment.”

The first hourlong session took place on Monday, with the second happening on Tuesday evening, just before the debate started. Another session was held on Wednesday, with a fourth happening on Friday. Four more are set to run this week on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday.

The page instructs participants to register in advance, adding that they will be expected to adhere to rules regarding respectful dialogue.”

Colleges Offered ‘Safe Spaces’ To Deal With ‘Trauma’ Of Trump Winning In 2016

This comes four years after colleges all over the country offered counseling to students to help them deal with the “trauma” of President Donald Trump being elected, according to Campus Reform.

For example, the University of Massachusetts-Boston offered a “Coping and Balance” workshop that gave students the chance to deal with the “pain” of Trump becoming president through interacting with “Doggo, the therapy dog.”

After Trump won the election, Virginia Tech sent an email to students saying it was offering counseling to students who are “waking up with fear, anxiety, concern, questions, and confusion” due to Trump’s victory.

VT’s director of intercultural engagement center, Tricia Smith, wrote in the email that she wanted all members of the school community “to hear clearly that you are loved.”

“I hope that every person will take extra time today to consider this context and care for those around them. The strength of the Hokie community has long been notable but not every member of our community has felt they belong,” she wrote, adding that “today, this may feel almost insurmountable.”

“I want you to hear clearly that you are loved,” she added. “You deserve wellness. You deserve to thrive. You deserve community.”

Lord help us when this weak next generation is tasked with running our country.
