CPI President Judith Schubert Publishes Article in Campus Safety

“Unpredictable actions can be behavioral adaptations related to a previous psychological trauma. Individuals with a trauma history will often turn to alcohol or drugs as a means to self-medicate their emotional pain. When the individual stops using a substance to self-medicate, he or she will often look for other behavioral adaptations to fill the gap.”

In a recent Campus Safety article, “Expect the Unexpected: Responding to Unpredictable Behavior,” CPI president Judith Schubert discusses unexpected behaviors that may result when a person who has experienced psychological trauma turns to alcohol or drugs.

In the article, Judith shares a list of six interventions that can be used with a person who exhibits unpredictable behavior. These strategies can help caregivers anticipate behaviors and prevent future crises.
