Weekly sessions provide info, positive response

Counseling and Psychological Services will host self-improvement and supportive workshops helping students with issues including dealing with change, identifying signs of emotional and physical abuse, professionalism, stress management and break-ups.

The workshops are from noon to 1 p.m. on Wednesdays through April 27 in the Student Service Center 1 Building Conference Room 210 A.

“Students have always responded favorably to our outreach workshops,” said Kimberly James, outreach director. “Our workshops educate students and enhance skills that will positively impact interpersonal relationships and thus improve academic achievement and retention among students.

“Everyone experiences stress and it is natural to want to talk to someone during these challenging times,” James said. “We want students to come to CAPS before their struggles become overwhelming.

“However, an individual experiencing a crisis can come to CAPS at any time during office hours and receive a prompt in-person evaluation.”

Crystal Sigstey, marketing senior, has no experience with the offered workshops but expressed interest.

“I haven’t heard of any of the workshops at all. I would go,” Sigstey said. “I need stress management because I’m stressed all the time.”

Despite the lure of getting relaxation tips, marketing senior Shawn Warnke still has his schedule in mind.

“Depends on scheduling and how often they are,” Warnke said. “I’m always willing to experience opportunities that promote self-improvement.”
