Emotional Wisdom

Wednesdays (CC) 5:00pm-6:00pm (Dr. Katie Bigalke)

If you are dealing with stress, anxiety, or depression and would benefit from learning or reviewing emotional wisdom such as relaxation, mindfulness, cognitive tools to battle anxiety or depression, emotion regulation, and/or social anxiety, this could be the seminar for you!

Seminars are designed with the “Learn by Doing” principle. Learn and practice exercises together so that you gain confidence using these skills in your daily life to manage stress, anxiety, and depression. Participate at your level of comfort. Topics will cover the same information but are offered on two different days to try and accommodate some scheduling conflicts.




Mindful Yoga

Wednesdays & Fridays (CC) 11:00 am – 12:00 pm  (Angela Ogburn & Gemma Skuraton)

Learn yoga postures to cope with anxiety, depression, and trauma as we explore the mind-body connection together. Breathing and meditation techniques will also be a focus of this interactive group. No previous yoga experience needed. You need only an openness to self-awareness and new experiences. Join us to learn how stabilizing your body and breath can lead to stabilizing your emotional self.

Sleep Clinic

April 4-Wednesdays  (CC) 4:00pm-5:00pm  (Dr. Lauren O. Patterson)

Sleep Clinic is a 4-week, drop-in workshop for improving sleep. Content is based on the Cognitive-Behavior Treatment of Insomnia (CBT-I) approach, including improving sleep by stimulus control, sleep restriction, sleep hygiene, relaxation training, and cognitive therapy. Topics build on one another in order to help students develop a well-rounded approach to improving sleep quality. It is recommended that students attend all four sessions, but if students are unable to attend all of them that’s okay! Come to the sessions that you can.
