Emotional Wellbeing Workshops
We are committed to supporting student mental health while also responding to the current global pandemic and prioritizing health and safety for students and employees. To this end, Counseling Services is currently offering all services remotely by phone and HIPAA-compliant Zoom.
Emotional Wellbeing Workshops will help you grow and Learn by Doing! These workshops offer quick, effective solutions and useful tools for common concerns like anxiety (Anxiety Toolbox), relationships (BRIDGE), and depression (Getting Unstuck). We know your schedules are full – these workshops are designed to be high value, helping you learn new skills and gain insight while connecting with other students.
Each Emotional Wellbeing Workshop is a three session series that meets once per week for three weeks. Each meeting is 50 minutes. All workshops come with a workbook to help you practice new skills and apply ideas in between sessions. There is no charge for workshops at Cal Poly – your student health fees cover this service. We ask that you commit to the full series when you sign up and attend each session, as they build on one another. (If you arrive more than 5 minutes late, or no show a session, you'll be charged $20.)
You are free to do more than one workshop and to repeat them as often as you like! If you are interested in attending any (or all!) of the workshops, schedule a Brief Screening and tell the counselor you meet with. If you are already seeing a therapist at Counseling Services, tell them you are interested in a workshop, and they'll get you connected.

Seeking Serenity is informed by dialectical behavior therapy and is designed for students who experience overwhelming emotions that feel difficult to manage. The three sessions are divided into content that builds upon itself. The sessions include modules dedicated to: (1) distress tolerance, (2) emotion regulation, and (3) mindfulness. By the end of the workshop, you will have strategies for better managing overwhelming emotions.
Please note that, depending on the severity of your symptoms, you may be required to be concurrently enrolled in individual counseling (either through Counseling Services or off campus) in order to participate in Seeking Serenity. Your initial consultation counselor will discuss this with you prior to enrollment.
