Can’t stop worrying? Tired, irritable or having trouble concentrating? Stressed about school, work, friends and/or family? The University Counseling Center is offering FREE anxiety workshops throughout the fall semester at the Student Success Center:

Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction, Asia Wong, LMSW
Tuesday, 09/22/15, 12:30-1:30, Marquette 112

Learn how to focus on the present rather than getting lost in anxiety about the future or regrets about the past. Find ways to attend to your emotions without magnifying problems, or getting lost in criticism and self-judgment.

 

Automatic Thoughts and Cognitive Distortions, Alicia Bourque, PhD
Tuesday, 09/29/15, 12:30-1:30, Marquette 112

Find out more about the specific thought patterns you engage in that cause you anxiety and stress, and learn how to change them!

 

Progressive Muscle Relaxation and Meditation, Erin Shapiro, LPC
Wednesday, 10/07/15, 12:30-1:30, Marquette 112

Take time out of your busy day to truly relax for an hour! A trained counselor will lead you through calming guided imagery and progressive muscle relaxation. You will also learn how to do this on your own. At the end of this session, you should feel relaxed, focused and ready to face your challenges.

 

Self-Care and Stress Management, Gil Lerma, MA

Ever felt hangry? Too tired to focus? Learn about the behavioral and biological factors that contribute to stress, what you can do improve self-care, and form a plan to implement change.
