Workshops are designed to build specific skills to address many of the most common concerns our students experience. Workshops typically consist of 3-4 sessions, and are offered repeatedly throughout the semester. In these sessions, facilitators teach strategies for effective coping and students benefit from learning with other students. If you are interested in attending a workshop, please schedule an initial consultation. Each Summer 2022 workshop will be offered either virtually via Zoom or in-person. Please check individual workshop descriptions for details about format..
