If you’re having trouble coping with the demands of university life—or even regular everyday situations—this four-part workshop series is right for you.
- Worry constantly about worst-case scenarios?
- Blame or criticize yourself, even when things are going well?
- Feel like your emotions are overwhelming and difficult to tolerate?
- Avoid situations or activities because they make you nervous or because you think you’ll fail?
- Push yourself to do things perfectly, but still feel like a failure?
The Better Coping Skills workshops can help you develop coping skills to thrive and better meet the demands of university, work and your personal life.
You can also learn better coping skills any time through the Better Coping Skills Online Workshop. This online series is available to students who want to develop strategies they can use in everyday life to engage in more balanced thinking and deal with negative emotions. It was designed by Health & Wellness counsellors at the University of Toronto with you in mind. It is a first step to better coping skills, and should be used to complement other supportive resources such as your family, friends and community.
University of Toronto undergraduate and graduate students across all three campuses (St. George, Mississauga and Scarborough)
