Workshops for Fall 2018:

Student Counseling Services is excited to present our John B. Well Workshop series. In the past, we have hosted "John B. Well Week" which was dedicated to mental wellness. We have expanded this to a workshop series that will occur throughout the semester. All workshops are free and open to all active Stetson students.

Healing Spiritual Wounds

November 6, 2018
4:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Religious traditions, places of worship, and spiritual families should provide comfort during times of difficulty. Yet, too often, we experience the contrary. This workshop, facilitated by SCS Intern, Michelle Sullivan, explores the need for healing when love, refuge, and a sense of belonging are needed most, but not provided.

Volume Levels of Me: From College to Home

Building Resilience is a skills-based group designed for students who experience intense emotions and mood swings or whose emotional pain may lead to angry outbursts, relationship turmoil or self-injury. Sometimes self-defeating behaviors seem to offer short-term relief, but end up causing problems that make life even more difficult. DBT is a confidential group for men and women who help group members target the issues that cause distress and teaches skills to deal with these problems without resorting to unhealthy behaviors. Group members complete workbook assignments during the course of the group. Homework topics that correspond to the skill topics discussed in the group are routinely assigned and reviewed. To join or for more information, please contact Student Counseling Services for a screening appointment.
