A college professor in Canada suggested that students and administrators call other students’ bluff about being traumatized by college. Per Campus Reform:
Dr. Jordan Peterson, a research and clinical psychologist at the University of Toronto, said the word trauma should not be tossed around casually by students.
“If you’re that vulnerable, then you’re in no position to be exposing yourself to challenging dialogue,” Peterson said in an interview with The College Fix. “You’re not fit, in a psychological sense, for any complex activity. To be traumatized by a discussion you have to be teetering on the edge of intrapsychic disintegration.”
The term trauma has a clinical meaning attached to it, he said.
