Join Our Winter Break Program! College Success for Young Adults
We are offering two groups designed for young adults, (18 – 25), who are either in college, about to enter a college program, or taking a year off from college. This program is designed to teach and enhance skills that promote the emotional resilience and effective behavioral strategies necessary for success during this transitioning time, and it is being offered during Winter Break when young adults have greater flexibility in their schedules. The scheduling for the groups is arranged so that participants can attend one or both groups.
This group will cover organization, planning, time management, and self-monitoring skills. Participants will be encouraged to discuss assignments and tasks that they struggled with during previous college semesters, such as managing emails, studying for final exams, completing long-term projects, and balancing their social lives with academics. Sleep habits and managing other tasks of independent living will be touched upon as well.
Dates: December 21, 28, January 4, 8, and 11
Time: 11:00 to 12:30
The group will be infused with both cognitive behavioral and dialectical behavioral therapy skills that have shown enormous success in promoting effective management of emotions and behaviors. It will include work on increasing awareness of emotional states, emotional triggers, and intensity of emotions; improving ability to focus and attend to work and school; and increasing ability to control emotional states, address vulnerability, and increase positive emotions.
Dates: December 27, 29, January 3, 5, 10
Time: 11:00 to 12:30
