Do you ever worry about making it to the end of semester, or even the end of the week, with all of your responsibilities and expectations as a graduate student? Do you feel like your stress level affects your work or quality of life? This workshop will offer an interactive presentation on an alternative approach to stress management. You will learn how your mind is not always the most effective in relieving the effects of stress or even the goals you wish to accomplish. Further, you'll learn how to assess the cost of your current coping strategies and engage in stress management behaviors that are consistent with your values.
