Emotional Wellbeing Workshops
After the initial consultation, many students are referred to one of our Emotional Wellbeing Workshops, an innovative series created to provide quick and useful tools without overburdening the busy schedules of Mines students. Each workshop is broken up into three sessions, provided once per week in 50-minute slots. Workshops come with a student workbook that will allow you to practice new skills between sessions. Currently, we are offering three workshop topics (see descriptions below). We will be introducing additional relevant topics in the near future.
Anxiety Toolbox focuses on helping you understand anxiety and build skills to manage these symptoms. The three sessions are divided into content that builds upon itself. The modules are dedicated to (1) understanding anxiety, (2) introducing a method for slowing down and disentangling the experience of anxiety, and (3) developing alternative responses to anxiety. By the end of the workshop, you will have your own individualized plan for managing anxiety.
RIO (RECOGNITION / INSIGHT / OPENNESS)
Recognition, Insight, Openness (RIO) focuses on building skills and creating flexibility in how you respond to distress. The three sessions are divided into content that builds upon itself. The modules are dedicated to (1) helping you gain a deeper understanding of your concerns, (2) creating flexibility in how you view and approach these issues, and (3) helping you take steps toward living with a wide range of emotions. By the end of the workshop, you will have a better sense of your personal values and how you want to focus your energy.
GETTING UNSTUCK FROM DEPRESSION
Getting Unstuck focuses on helping you understand depressive symptoms and build skills to manage these symptoms. The three sessions are divided into content that builds upon itself. The sessions include modules dedicated to (1) understanding depression, (2) exploring how thoughts and behaviors impact depression, and (3) addressing how you can begin to make changes to thoughts and behaviors in order to better manage depression. By the end of the workshop, you will have your own individualized plan for getting unstuck.
If you are interested in attending any of the workshops, schedule an Initial Consultation and tell your counselor. You are free to do more than one workshop and to repeat them as often as you like. Check with the front desk for current scheduling and availability.
