Program Topics Offered Include:
This topic has been getting a lot of attention in the past few years, especially the role the media plays in how men and women view themselves. In this program we challenge participants to explore their own body image and decide for themselves what factors are contributing to their positive or negative body image and the effects this body image is having on the rest of their life.
What's the difference between assertiveness, aggressiveness, and passive-aggressiveness? This program helps participants identify these different styles of interacting in their own life and understand why two of these methods often lead to frustration. Participants are given an opportunity to role-play situations from their own life and incorporate passive-aggressive, aggressive and assertive responses.
Understanding and Embracing Diversity
We all have a vague idea of what is meant by diversity (different cultures, different religious affiliations, different sexual orientations, etc.) but does that give us a complete picture of what diversity is? How do we view diversity? As an obstacle to be overcome, or as a gift that strengthens our lives?
Are you in a relationship? Is it a healthy relationship? Do you feel pressured to be in a relationship? In this program we address these and other questions, offering participants a chance to discuss their own opinions about relationships and how to build healthy ones.
Most of us are aware of some of our stereotypes, but often we carry other stereotypes around with us that we are not aware of. How do these unacknowledged assumptions about other groups affect our day-to-day interactions and what can we do to bring these hidden stereotypes to light?
Heavy course loads, new friends, being far from home, all of these can be exciting, but they can also lead to a lot of stress. During this program we suggest ways to manage the stress that is an inevitable part of life and find more effective ways of dealing with stressors as they present themselves.
