Workshops and Drop-in Spaces

Every semester the Carruth Center for Counseling and Psychological Services offers a variety of workshops and drop-in spaces. Workshops are a great way to learn skills; they also provide practical ways to help manage your thoughts and feelings.  Workshops are often skills-based and don't require a lot of self-disclosure.

Workshops are generally a 3-4 week commitment and no initial appointment is needed. Please register via the links below or email the workshop facilitator.
