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.
Let’s Talk Tuesdays Open Forum
Tuesdays, 6:00-7:00 pm, Residence Hall Common Areas (Rotation TBD) with Mr. Arty Allen
Living on your own is hard. Living with roommates can be harder, not to mention all the other demands you are juggling. If you have ever wondered, “How do I effectively communicate with my roommate?” or “Is it normal to be nervous about going to my professor’s office hours for the first time?” or “What’s the deal with ‘self-care’ or counseling anyway?” then drop on by and Let’s Talk. Let’s Talk Tuesdays is an informal forum where you can ask a counselor questions about boundaries, self-care, communication, relationships, and counseling that you have always been curious about but never had the chance to ask
