This is done by coordinating CAPS services for survivors of interpersonal violence, facilitating training for CAPS clinicians regarding trauma-informed best practices, and supporting a professional environment that encourages clinicians to practice healthy trauma stewardship. In addition to these core responsibilities the IVSC also actively consults with OSU faculty and staff regarding how to best support students who have experienced trauma.
