Outreach Programs and Workshops
The Counseling Center is pleased to offer a variety of educational programs and workshops for your class or campus organization, on topics related to psychological and emotional health. We can arrange to present in your classroom, residence hall, or other campus location. Some examples of popular outreach programs are:
- “How to Manage Stress”
- “What is Counseling?”
- “Understanding Date Rape and How to Prevent It”
- "Building Decision Making Skills”
- "Feeling Good: Self-Esteem”
- “What’s the Difference?: Substance Use and Substance Abuse”
- “Relationship Issues”
- "Healthy and Unhealthy Eating”
You may also request a presentation on other topics, and the staff at the Counseling Center will work to accommodate your request.
We ask that you give us at least two weeks’ notice when requesting an outreach presentation, if possible. This will allow for flexibility with any scheduling changes. To make an outreach request, please e-mail Scott Sokoloski with the following information:

In addition to our outreach programs, during the academic year the Counseling Center may offer psychoeducational workshops for students. These workshops are usually brief (three-to-four weeks) weekly meetings that focus on topics such as stress management, mindfulness, or study skills. We attempt to adapt our topics based on the current needs of our students.
A workshop is different than a therapy group in that it often includes introducing new information, providing handouts, regular “homework” that encourages self-exploration at home, and group discussion.
If you are interested in enrolling in a workshop, you have a few different ways to do so. If you are already a client at the Counseling Center, please tell your counselor that you would like to participate. If you are not a client, please contact the Counseling Center at (215) 895-1415, or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request more information. In many cases, you may need to schedule an intake session in order to join a workshop.
