The Counseling Center offers a calendar of programs and events open to the university community. Members of our staff as well as peer educators, are available to present programs on a wide variety of topics to TU student organizations, classes, university departments, staff, and offices that serve TU students.

Connecting during covid "cdc" daily groups (will resume in spring 2021 semester)

Self-Compassion and Boundaries

Being a student during a worldwide pandemic is challenging in many aspects. Join this every Monday at 4pm to develop your self-compassion and develop techniques for boundary setting. This includes self-kindness, recognizing our common humanity, and learning mindfulness techniques such as establishing healthy appropriate boundaries with both individuals as well as things in your life.

Facilitator: Feven Ghile

8 Dimensions of Wellness

This series of Connecting During COVID (CDC) outreach groups will explore the 8 Dimensions of Wellness that have been identified by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA; a branch of HHS).  Each week will focus on a different dimension with additional value-related wellness information interspersed as needed. Each week, students will develop a personalized plan to better live the values of that session in their own lives. Join us every Tuesday at 1pm to explore and better understand your values.

The How-To Guide to Staying Connected

Connection is an important part of psychological health. Humans are social creatures and strive from support and bonds with others. Feeling connected to a variety of aspects of life can often be difficult, particularly during the current times. This how-to guide aims to help explore the utility of connection and how we can be mindful of maintaining meaningful connections in our lives to help us grow and life our best life. Join us every Wednesday at 3pm to stay connected!

Stress...How Can I Reduce That?

As humans and certainly as students, we ALL experience stress; however, there are things we can do to reduce it.  In this group, we will be exploring and applying techniques surrounding mindfulness, progressive relaxation, and work-life balance as well as connecting to others in a supportive space.  Join us every Thursday at 4pm to learn strategies proven to be effective at reducing stress and its harmful effects.
