Our Wellness Workshop program provides opportunities for students to develop and/or expand their coping toolbox through a three-to-four session-formatted workshop. Workshops are different from group therapy in that they are psychoeducational and didactical in nature, focusing on learning, practicing coping skills, and providing activities to encourage self-reflection. Please note that workshop members may be invited but are not expected to share their reflections. Descriptions of commonly offered workshops are found below.

Mood Management is a three-session workshop for students residing in Pennsylvania only and is intended to increase your understanding of emotions and develop strategies to help you cope when your emotions become distressing and hard to tolerate. We will review methods that have been shown to be helpful with mood concerns, such as depression. In addition, many of these strategies can help individuals navigate relationship problems, cope with stress, improve self-esteem, and become less anxious and more confident. The workshop sessions will focus on mindfulness, emotion regulation, and distress tolerance.
This workshop is for any individual who identifies as a member of the BIPOC community who is looking for support in managing imposter syndrome and burnout. Imposter syndrome is unique when you apply a colorized lens, as it is so deeply intertwined with assimilation and racism. As a result, it disproportionately affects women and minority groups. Imposter syndrome can intensify burnout for members of the BIPOC community and therefore requires unique coping strategies. This three-session workshop will explore the intricacies of Imposter Syndrome and Burnout within the BIPOC community and identify adaptive coping strategies to help navigate these ongoing behaviors.
Fun fact: Improving your self-esteem will have a positive impact on your performance, your relationships, and how you relate with the world.
