We reach outside the physical walls of the center to provide interactive and engaging presentations, workshops, and consultation.
Workshops and Presentations
We offer these free workshops/presentations to student groups and living units throughout the year on a variety of issues relevant to students and student life, including:
A discussion about what anxiety, depression, and transitions/adjustments to the college campus may look like. We can help assist students in learning skills for managing life transitions, and we'll take a look at how to get help on campus and how to help a friend in need.
This presentation helps to identify healthy communication patterns, healthy relationship patterns, social assertiveness, boundary setting, healthy coping skills, and ways to increase self-esteem.
This program is here to assist students in better understanding their experiences in relation to personal and collective loss.
* In the event of a loss on campus, the University Counseling Center is willing to provide support in a classroom, department, residence hall, or Greek house in order to provide a space to understand and process the impact of the loss.
An introduction to what mindfulness is, how to incorporate it into your daily life, and assist you in practicing mindfulness skills to help manage stress and anxiety, build concentration, and be present in the moment.
Learn how stress and anxiety may affect you, as well as ways to help mitigate these feelings and responses. Steps you can take to create a healthier lifestyle may also be discussed.
Identify ways that substance use may impact your mental health as well as other aspects of your life. Learn about high/low risk alcohol use, how to identify problematic drinking behaviors, and how to talk with peers about their substance use.
An explanation of what counseling may look like and services offered by the University Counseling Center, as well as other resources and supports for students on campus.
Additionally, we are willing to serve as Counselors Standing By at campus events where attendees may be triggered by content presented.
