Toolkits are workshops designed to help students develop and practice new skills to enhance personal, academic and social well-being. Toolkits differ from CWS groups in that they are more focused on skill acquisition and are only one to four sessions in duration. Please see the descriptions below for particular toolkit lengths.
All students interested in participating in a toolkit workshop should call (212) 998-4780 for further information and registration.

Mindfulness-based Relapse Prevention (MBRP)
This weekly toolkit is designed to bring practices of mindful awareness to individuals who have experienced the addictive and reactive trappings and tendencies of the mind. MBRP practices are intended to foster increased awareness of triggers, destructive habitual patterns, and “automatic” reactions.
The mindfulness practices in MBRP are designed to help individuals pause, observe present experience, and bring awareness to the range of choices in every moment, rather than react in ways that are detrimental to health and happiness.
