Have you announced these to your classes yet?
Dear Friends of the Wellness Center:Two of the Wellness Center’s support groups may be particularly helpful for stressed out students as we head into the second half of the term. I encourage you to share this information with your classes.Overcoming Stress Support Group: This very popular group assists members in evaluating their stress levels and supports them in developing a stress reduction plan. The group is primarily experiential in that members learn stress reduction techniques, such as progressive muscle relaxation, deep breathing, visualization, and the use of body awareness as a biofeedback method for gauging stress levels. Meets Mondays, 3:30 – 5:00 p.m.Busy Moms’ Support Group: This group offers support and resource sharing for students who are mothers. Members are supported in stress reduction, shared childcare, identification of social support services (including low-cost childcare), time management, and realistic goal setting for academic pursuits. Because these moms are always “on the run,” the group offers the opportunity to make friends and feel more connected to the HWC community. Meets Fridays, 9:30 – 10:45 a.m. A second group may start on Thursday afternoons.Interested students should stop by the Wellness Center, Room 733, or call us at 312-553-6072. Thanks for supporting our students and the Wellness Center!Mike Russell,Manager, The Wellness Center
