Counseling Services would like to assist you and your students in having a successful and purposeful semester. Through engaging workshops that are fun but also educational and personal, students will be able to learn more about themselves, and therefore become better equipped students.
Workshops last approximately 45-60 minutes, and will be presented by counselors or mental health interns under supervision. To schedule a workshop, please complete Workshop Request Form (see below). Due to increased demand for workshops and limited counselor’s availability, we respectfully request that you comply with the following requirements:
- All workshop requests must be submitted at least 2 weeks in advance of the date you wish to hold the workshop
- Due to high volume, only one workshop is allowed per class. Requests for more than one workshop will be handled on an individual basis, pending counselor availability.
Professors are expected to be present on the day of the workshop.
If you have any questions or would like to request a workshop or a presentation, please contact: Ilona Fridson, Outreach Coordinator at (718) 368-5996.
