This year has presented us with some unique challenges. In addition to the health concerns associated with Covid-19, the stress and uncertainty at this time can feel heavy and overwhelming. Many of us are practicing social distancing or in self-isolation, making it more important than ever to maintain a sense of community and take care of our wellness.

 In order to provide some support to our student community, our Student Counsellors will host a five-week workshop series to build community, and explore strategies for developing personal, professional and academic resilience.

Each week will focus on a different area of resilience or wellness. You are welcome to join the full series or drop into one session. These sessions will be interactive with the option to share and connect with others, but participants may also just listen and observe.

These workshops will be offered via Blackboard Collaborate.

Thursday, Nov 26, 2020, at 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. (PDT), facilitated by Frances Kinloch.

This session will offer:

  • A discussion of the impacts of screen time on our mental and physical health
  • Tips on how to take care of ourselves while meeting our work/school expectations
  • Approaches for self-compassion and self-care during a stressful and screen-heavy time

If you have any questions about this session, please contact our Counselling team via email.
