Mar 23 | Workshop: Mindfulness For Stress & Anxiety

WORKSHOP

Mindfulness For Stress & Anxiety
Friday March 23, 2018
2:00 pm – 3:30 pm
Room #C205
Mari Dickerson, LMSW & Noia Efrat

Are you feeling stressed?  Overwhelmed? Does it feel like you’re always somewhere else, ruminating about the past or worrying about the future?  Are you engaging in behaviors to manage stress that you would like to change?

Mindfulness is a practice of learning to attend to the present moment with more acceptance.  It is a systematic way of slowing down, observing one’s reactions, and relating to experiences with greater ease and compassion.  Mindfulness has been shown to enhance well-being by reducing the impact of stress and helping people cope with symptoms of anxiety and depression.  In addition, mindfulness can be applied to managing urges and cravings to use substances or other problematic behaviors such as self-injury and over-eating.

Join us for a workshop to learn the basic principles of mindfulness along with guided practices that can be easily incorporated in daily life.

Please note that no food or beverage will be allowed during this workshop.

Registration is MANDATORY for this workshop.  To register stop by the Wellness Center Student Counseling Services in Room 6422 to fill out a workshop application. The application has also been attached here for your convenience; email and fax is acceptable.  For more information please call (212) 817-8731.  You must have your student ID with current validation sticker available to present.
