This workshop will focus on cultivating skills for those who are initiating personal requests with others. It will focus on communication skills, as well as addressing emotions that arise from “putting yourself out there” and facing the possibility of a “no” to requests.
This workshop introduces participants to brief mindfulness techniques to manage stress and increase resiliency.
Stress Management Practicum
This workshop provides insight into how to manage stress and offers the opportunity to try out some hands-on de-stress activities.
A friend is the most likely person that someone will turn to if they have been sexually assaulted. Come learn what helps, what doesn’t help, and what a big difference you can make in your friend’s life.
