Career Centre Counseling

Dear students,

unfortunately, we live in time when lives and material goods are endangered and events we recently witnessed are classified as traumatic. Most people believe that the world we live in is predictable and safe, but as we have seen based on recent events, it is not.

Reactions on traumatic event are numerous, some of them are:

- alertness that can manifest in angry and enraged reactions, difficulty with staying in focus, continuous anxiety and worry, looking for clues from our surroundings that could indicate another incoming earthquake, intense reactions to outside stimuli, etc.;

- evasive reactions that occur some time after traumatic event, such as evading thoughts, feelings, concersations, people, places, situations that remind us of traumatic event, inability to remember key aspects of some events, losing interest in activities we enjoyed prior to traumatic event (reading, recreation, hobbies, ...), feeling of not being connected to other people, indifference, emotional dullness, inability to visualize and plan for future, etc.;

- reactions of reliving traumatic events that can be disturbing memories, images, feelings, reocurring and disturbing dreams and nightmares, getting upset when we get reminded of traumatic event (noises, earth tremors, etc.), uncontroled fear, anxiety, inability to control emotions, sweating, heart pounding, shivering etc.


These reactions are numoerous and it is impossible to list them all. Important thing is that these kind of reactions are completely normal for this abnormal circumstances.

Trauma changes our life and our beliefs about world and it is difficult to deal with that feelings alone.

In order to help yourself through difficult times you can connect yourself to friends and family who experienced similar events. Try to maintain regular eating, sleeping and higiene schedule. Get to know safety protocols for emergency situations, in case they ocurr again.

Lastly, you do not have to deal with these feelings alone. Feel free to talk to us and to set date for counseling, contact us on these e-mail adresses:
