Anxiety Toolbox Workshop                                                                      
Anxiety Toolbox is a fast-paced three-session seminar specifically designed to help people who struggle with a variety of anxiety-related concerns (e.g., panic attacks, Generalized Anxiety, test anxiety). The goal of this seminar is to provide education on anxiety and to teach coping skills for managing anxiety symptoms. Teaching Anxiety Toolbox over the course of 3 sessions allows you sufficient time to learn the concepts with time to practice between sessions.  Keeping it to three 50-minute sessions allows you to find time in your busy schedule to learn these skills.

Date/Time: To be determined

Registration Details: Interested students should email Counseling@Dartmouth.edu asking to be put on the email list for notifications about the workshop. Students should be able to attend all three sessions of the workshop. 

Attention Please! Support Space 

Tuesdays, 1-2 p.m. ET, beginning April 6, 2021

The Support Space will be an opportunity for participants to support each other and share experiences about dealing with attentional problems, e.g., past struggles, helpful actions, present and future challenges, moderated by Counseling Center clinicians.  The course and content of the meetings will be flexible, adapting to the needs and desires of the attendees.

The Support Space is not a therapy group, and is open to all enrolled students who want to join, regardless of geographic location.  Students can attend as many or as few of the meetings as they want.  Attendees will need to join through a Dartmouth Zoom account.

Registration Details: Interested students should email Counseling@Dartmouth.edu asking to be put on the email list for notifications about the workshop. Students are under no obligation to join even if they send us their name.

Emotion Regulation Station
Learn skills to boost your ability to manage intense feelings and distressing emotions. This workshop will take place in four sections, each uncovering a component of emotion management and our effectiveness in relationships. Each section will take place over the course of two weeks. Students can join the group at the beginning of any single section, so there will be four opportunities to join throughout the term. It is recommended that students attend all four parts as the skills build off each other- however, there is something to be gained for those who cannot make it to all sessions.

Registration Details: Interested students should email Counseling@Dartmouth.edu asking to be put on the email list for notifications about the workshop. Students are under no obligation to join even if they send us their name. 

Coping with Quarantine
Share experiences and strategies with fellow remote learners on topics like being away from friends, being at home with family, struggling with the remote learning modality (e.g., zoom fatigue) and other COVID related challenges. 

Date/Time: To be determined

Registration Details: Interested students should email Counseling@Dartmouth.edu asking to be put on the email list for notifications about the workshop. Students are under no obligation to join even if they send us their name. Attending weekly is strongly suggested, but not required.

From Criticism to Kindness: A Self-Compassion Workshop
This workshop is for students who engage in critical, judgmental self-talk and struggle to offer themselves the same understanding, compassion, and encouragement that they extend to others. The workshop is designed to create greater awareness of this self-criticism and teach strategies for responding in a more self-compassionate way in order to reduce the distress one is experiencing. 

Date/Time: To be determined

Registration Details: Interested students should email Counseling@Dartmouth.edu asking to be put on the email list for notifications about the workshop. Students are under no obligation to join even if they send us their name.
