Wellness Workshops

1. Better Coping Workshop for Graduate Students: Series 2016-17

Offered by Health and Wellness Centre - Student Life

Do you have trouble coping with everyday situations?

Do you...

  • worry constantly about worst-case scenarios?

  • blame or criticize yourself, even when things are going well?

  • feel like your emotions are overwhelming and difficult to tolerate?

  • avoid situations or activities because they make you nervous or because you think you'll fail?

  • push yourself to do things perfectly, but still feel like a failure?

If any of these apply to you, we can help. We're offering a series of workshops, to help you develop coping skills to meet the demands of university, work, and personal life. 

Where: The School of Graduate Studies, 65 St. George Street, Room 201.
