Training in suicide awareness has become a priority on campus as we strive to identify and serve students who have lost the will to live. QPR (Question, Persuade, Refer) has been designed for any individual to notice those in need and direct them to help. With video presentation, power point slides, handouts and role play, participants will practice the skill of asking sensitive questions and responding with confidence to those experiencing emotional distress. Ideas for fostering hope will be shared and resource materials will be provided.×
Overwhelmed by responsibilities? Pressured by impending deadlines? Or just plain frustrated trying to keep up with the hustle and bustle of everyday life? Then it’s time to do some journaling. Through journaling, you can explore difficult thoughts, feelings, and situations with easy to use writing and art exercises. Journaling promotes creativity, reduces stress, and strengthens problem solving skills.×
In order to help students who have lost a relationship (parent, spouse or friend) due to death, divorce or separation, this workshop is designed to facilitate the process of rebuilding. Stages of grief will be reviewed, as well as the core tasks of dealing with denial, fear, loneliness and guilt. Students will address anger, worth and transition so they are more open to letting go, trusting and finding purpose in their present situation. Remembering the important lessons learned from the relationship and celebrating the positive memories will be balanced with the opportunity to manage the frustration and disappointment associated with loss, especially premature or unexpected loss.×
“I’m not asking you to like me, but you have to respect me.” Have you ever heard something similar to this? Respect is a “buzz” word that seems to stay in style. R&B Queen, Aretha Franklin did a remake of the famous RESPECT song (originally performed by Ottis Redding), in 1967 and it continues to be a staple for listeners of all ages. Participants in this workshop will define respect and ways it is used in relationships; identify other character traits that foster respect in relationships; and explore how nonverbal actions can affect one’s perception of being respected, or giving respect.×
