Event description

Are you interested in improving your well-being and coping skills?

UC Medical and Counselling Centre is running a FREE weekly psych skill workshop for UC students.

Each week one of our Psychologists will work with students on building a new set of skills and the tools to manage a range of challenges students face today – such as goal setting, connecting with others, managing stress, and overcoming procrastination.

The Weekly Psych Session is presented in-person every even week, and online every odd week. Please see the table below upcoming topics and delivery method.
