Workshop Descriptions

Stress Less

Want to learn new ways to manage stress and feel better?  CAPS’ peer-led Stress Less workshops are 90-minute interactive, relaxing, and resource-filled experiences designed to help you identify areas of stress and make a plan for immediate (and long-term!) stress relief. Our Peer Educators are well trained in stress-management techniques, tips, and strategies, and they look forward to sharing their experiences and knowledge with you. Drop in to a prescheduled workshop, or fill out our online WORKSHOP REQUEST FORM.

 

How to Support a Friend

Almost everyone knows someone who is having a hard time, but we don’t always know how to help. If you feel unprepared or worry about “saying the wrong thing,” this workshop is for you!  "How to Support a Friend" is a peer-led workshop designed to help you recognize common signs of depression and anxiety and teach you valuable skills, including when and how to refer a friend to CAPS.  So, take 90 minutes out of your day to learn what to say and do to be a better and more supportive friend!  Drop in to a prescheduled workshop, or fill out our online WORKSHOP REQUEST FORM.

 

Test Anxiety

Learn techniques for managing and preventing test anxiety! This is a peer-led workshop designed to help you learn skills and build awareness of factors contributing to test anxiety. Drop in to a prescheduled workshop, or fill out our online WORKSHOP REQUEST FORM.
