Counseling and Wellness Services: CWS offers a variety of mindfulness services, including individual and toolkit (workshop) options:
Individual counseling: Students seeking individual counseling may request to work with a therapist on our Mindfulness Team. In addition to their generalist skills, these therapists also have specialized experience utilizing mindfulness techniques in therapy.
Individual mindfulness consultations: The mindfulness consultation is a 2- to 3-session intervention offered to students as either an adjunct to individual/group psychotherapy or a stand-alone service. Students will meet individually with a member of the CWS Mindfulness Team, and will have the opportunity to learn about the benefits of mindfulness for symptom reduction and overall psychological well-being; to learn basic mindfulness skills; and to develop a customized mindfulness plan.
Biofeedback Toolkit: In this workshop, students will be trained in the biofeedback technique to manage their stress using awareness of breath. Mondays, 4-5pm.
Mindful ColoringToolkit: This workshop will provide space for students to engage in mindfulness through adult coloring. Third and Fourth Tuesday of each month, 3:00 - 4:00pm.
Mindfulness Toolkit: In this workshop, students will learn and practice a variety of mindfulness meditation techniques. First four Tuesdays of each month, 5-6pm. Students must attend the first session to attend subsequent sessions.
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. Thursdays, 4-5pm.
