Workshops run for one session and are opportunities to learn new skills, work on problems or symptoms, in an interactive seminar format that includes some useful information in a mini-lecture.
You can arrange for a workshop from Counseling and Psychological Services workshops to come to your class, club meeting, or event. We have a standard menu of workshops, but can also tailor a workshop to your class or group.

Learn some basic techniques that can get you started.
