Wellness Workshops are designed to help students develop new skills that enhance personal, academic, and social well-being. They 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 workshop lengths. Wellness Workshops are an excellent option for students as a part of the integrative treatment model of Counseling and Wellness Services at NYU.
