Winter 2023 Resources & Opportunities (Vol. 2) – Husky Pawket Guide

Husky Pawket Guide From the Desk of Dr. Denzil Suite, UW Division of Student Life

Hi Huskies,

Since the start of the academic year, there have been numerous mass shootings and other acts of violence in our country, including two horrific incidents in California this past week.

Some of the acts have targeted the Asian American and LGBTQIA communities, among others. We all grieve deeply for those who lost their lives as well as for their loved ones and our entire community.

It is typical for people to experience a variety of emotions following such traumatic events. You may feel that the world is a more dangerous place now than you did before. It may take some time to recover your sense of equilibrium.

Meanwhile, you may wonder how to go on living your daily life. You can strengthen your resilience—the ability to adapt well in the face of adversity—in the days and weeks ahead. UW’s Counseling Center has tips for coping after tragic events.
