Wellness Workshops

During the fall 2021 quarter, the Counseling Center will be offering a number of virtual, psychoeducational workshops for students. These workshops will be brief, typically over the course of three or four weeks, and will focus on topics such as stress management, mindfulness, or study skills. These will be offered entirely online using the Zoom video conferencing platform, with some of them available to sign up on the website and others will require signing up through the Counseling Center. 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 includes education, practicing coping skills, and providing activities to encourage self-exploration. Please note that, while we are operating remotely, we ask that all participants keep their cameras on during the workshops. Keeping cameras on allows for a more interactive experience while also ensuring that all participants are in a private space during the workshop.

If you are interested in enrolling in a workshop, you have two options. Workshops that are available for online sign-up are listed in the menu to the left unless otherwise specified. For all other workshops which are listed below, please email counseling@drexel.edu and indicate which one(s) you are interested in joining. We will contact you with additional information.

Along with online workshops, the Counseling Center has prepared pre-recorded workshops for you to access on your own schedule. Please select them from the menu to the left.
