Well-being workshops for students

The Psychology Action group in Psychology ran four workshops on Wellbeing themes on Thursday 4th February, to follow from the opening of the Wellbeing Centre at Sunny Hill House the previous day https://unihelp.mdx.ac.uk/counsellingandmentalhealth

The workshops were really well attended (we had around 60 students) and they engaged really well with the presenters and materials. Evaluation forms showed they were appreciated, and more were requested.

The sessions were:
· Measure your stress levels online:  Prof Toni Bifulco & Dr Ruth Spence
· Coping with stress:  Dr Fiona Starr (Clinical Psychologist)
· Small steps towards wellbeing   Dr David Westley (Counselling) & Ruxandra Anghel (CBT practitioner)
· Living and learning with dyslexia. Dr Nicky Brunswick (Cognitive Psychologist)

We intend to run more of these workshops to help support the Wellbeing Centre with such PsychoEducational work. Please contact Fiona Starr if you would like to be involved.
