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.

Please note: Our SGS Coping Skills Workshops will be on hiatus in July and August and then will resume in the fall. 

If you're looking for workshops before September, we encourage you to register for the Coping Skills Workshops (open to all students) at the Koffler Centre. These will continue to run Tuesdays and Fridays 12-1:30 throughout the summer. Details.
