We may explore romantic and interpersonal relationships, family dynamics and personal growth and development. These groups require a pre-group informational meeting.
WISE Mind: A Skills-Based Group
How well do you cope with stress and stressful situations? This group will help you build skills-based techniques from Dialectical Behavioral Therapy to help you learn to identify your feelings and shift your negative self-talk while helping you build beneficial coping skills around reducing stress and anxiety. You can join this three-session, drop-in group at anytime during the semester.
Mondays, 1:30 - 3 p.m. (Hidetoshi Hama)
The Academic Confidence group offers a safe space for students who struggle with anxiety and other psychological barriers with classes to come together and discuss various strategies to overcome them. You can expect to gain benefits such as learning to build more confidence, better time and stress management, improved study habits and knowing the resources available by actively attending the sessions and following the suggestions discussed in the group. Note that this group is not a tutoring program.
