Groups & Workshops
Groups & Workshops are powerful vehicles for change. When we participate in a group with others who are living with similar concerns, we begin to realize that we are not alone in our struggles. We explore and learn new skills, practicing these in the safety of the group. Groups can be an empowering experience; feeling the support of the facilitator(s) and fellow group members can increase our motivation and energy to create the change we want for ourselves.

Dealing with Academic Stress
Facilitator: Denise Alton
Dates: Thursday, July 9, 2020
Time: 2:15 pm - 3:15 pm
Location: Zoom (Invitation will be sent on the morning of the workshop)
Many students feel pressured to excel academically and this can start to seep into how we think and feel about ourselves and our future. It's easy to become overwhelmed with the many academic demands we feel from our families, our peers, our classes and ultimately ourselves. Any kind of long terms stress can have a negative influence on our mental and physical well being. This workshop is designed to discuss how academic stress can impact our well being and provides strategies and exercises to move us toward becoming less stressed!
