Undergraduate Education students: Have the stressors and safety concerns of the pandemic taken a toll? Have you experienced loss, illness, or a difficult personal circumstance? Are you interested in learning valuable coping skills and tools to help lower anxiety?
The Faculty of Education is offering a 10-part Expressive Therapy and Student Wellness Workshop Series starting in January 2022. (Free for Undergraduate Education Students!)
