Outreach Programs

Healthy Relationships

This 1-hour workshop where we will discuss the following topics: definition of terms related within relationships, the signs of healthy vs unhealthy relationships, statistics, effects of social media on relationships, communication tips, and resources that are available for students. This presentation will give the students a better understanding of what a healthy relationship looks like and ways to identify the “reg flags” of an unhealthy relationship.

Peer Body Project

This intervention consists of verbal, written, and behavioral exercises in which participants voluntarily critique the beauty ideal promoted for females during one hour sessions over the course of four weeks.  These activities have been shown to result in decreased subscription to the “appearance ideal” and reductions in body dissatisfaction, negative mood, dieting, and eating disorder symptoms, as well as decreased risk for future eating disorders and improved psychosocial functioning when delivered by research clinicians. The topics that will be discussed and addressed in this workshop are the following: defining the appearance ideal and exploring its origin, ways to resist pressures to conform to unrealistic expectations of beauty, discuss how to challenge personal body-related concerns, learn new ways to talk more positively about body appearance, and discuss how to response to future pressures to conforming to societal standards of beauty.

Mental Health/Stress Management

The purpose of this program is to educate students about mental health and provide them with resources they can use during their college years.
