What special steps should I take if I need to talk with a student who makes me uneasy but isn't really a "threat"?
- Ask a colleague to stay close in case you need help.
- Have a phone at hand.
- Call for consultation if you need it.
- Keep your door open or meet with the student in a public place.
- Sit near the exit in case you need to leave quickly.
- Trust your intuition. If you begin to feel fearful, end the meeting.
