Mental Health Empowerment Series: Maximizing Positivity in Daily Life

  • GLC Lounge (Byers 417) 505 College Street New Haven, CT, 06511 United States (map)

Would you like to feel more grounded, and navigate academic pressures, social challenges, and relationships skillfully?  If so, these workshops are for you.  We are excited to share some evidence-based approaches from clinical psychology designed to help you to maximize your potential and enjoyment at Yale.  These workshops are interactive and present a broad array of strategies for coping with the ups and downs of college life.  This is not group therapy and you can attend any one workshop or the entire series.  We look forward to chatting with you in the Good Life Center at Silliman College.  Please join us.

All workshops are facilitated by May Conley, an advanced graduate student in clinical psychology, and Mary O’Brien, Ph.D., the Director of the Yale Psychology Department Clinic.

***Space is limited to 20 students per workshop. Please register [for each workshop separately] in advance via OrgSync.***
