Counsellors can provide workshops in the classroom for your students. Given the time constraints and breadth of the topics, these workshops would be introductory. However, they may encourage students who need additional assistance to meet with a counsellor individually for more in-depth help.
To accommodate requests, we ask for sufficient notice for scheduling these presentations.
Counsellors offer the following topics, and in some cases, they can also be tailored for your program:
Provides an understanding of what stress is and some techniques for managing stress and achieving a better balance in life.
