Would you like to relate more confidently and comfortably with others and improve your self-esteem? Interpersonal process groups provide opportunities to share experiences, learn new perspectives, and experiment with new ways of relating to others in a safe and supportive environment. Through this, participants will gain a better understanding of themselves and others.
Student of Color Process Group
This interpersonal process group provides a safe and supportive space for students of diverse cultural backgrounds to discuss topics relevant to their experience- race relations, cultural adjustments, gender equality, media influences on self-esteem/body image, romantic relationships, and overall issues related to being a student of color and college student at UWEC.

Attacking Anxiety and Depression Workshop
The attacking anxiety and depression workshop is a skill based workshop that focuses primarily on helping individuals, manage worry, conquer fears, and restructure thinking that exacerbates anxiety. The workshop skills are rooted in the mindful practices of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Each week the participants of the workshop will learn a new skill, practice said skill, and report on their perceptions of the effectiveness of that skill at the following week's workshop date. Participants will have opportunities to check in each week, identifying how their anxiety and depression is impacting them currently, as well as share feedback with one another. The outcomes of the group are to help participants better understand how their anxiety and/or depression manifests, identify specific interventions that help manage anxiety and depression, and diversify and expand on participant's coping skills and strengths.
This is a drop-in workshop aimed at helping students become happier. Each week focuses on empirically supported positive psychology techniques that have been shown to increase happiness, life satisfaction, and connectedness to others and to decrease depressive symptoms. Participants will learn new skills each week and as well as have opportunities to reflect on the things that they are already doing that contribute to their happiness.
