Fall 2021

Workshops led by mental health professionals

CSDC is offering a variety of virtual interactive presentations during the Fall 2021 semester that focus on mental health topics and managing the impact of COVID-19 stressors.

Workshops are free and available to students who are currently enrolled at the University of Hawai'i at Mānoa. A registration confirmation and Zoom link to the workshop will be emailed to students who register using the links below. Students are welcome to register for as many workshops as they wish. In the event that a workshop session reaches capacity and cannot accommodate additional registrants, you will be emailed by the workshop facilitator and invited to register for an alternative workshop session.

Please note that CSDC workshops are not considered psychotherapy or mental health interventions. These workshops are purely educational, and not meant to substitute therapeutic services with a licensed mental healthcare provider. Due to the group online format of these events, workshops are not considered a confidential service and your identifying information (i.e. Zoom identifier, Zoom profile picture) may be visible to others during the workshop.

Other workshops

Stress Management

Stress is an unavoidable part of college life. This workshop will examine different strategies used to decrease stress and help participants choose ways to better manage the stress in their lives.

Time Management

Time is finite but the demands on one's time often seem infinite. Learning to balance school, work, and other demands is necessary for academic success. We could assist you in exploring effective time management strategies.

Understanding your Personality

Each of us have unique talents and strengths that we can use to our advantage. By learning about personality using the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), workshop participants can identify their own personal strengths. *NOTE* This workshop requires participants to take the MBTI assessment prior to the workshop. (Fee: $15 per person, requires 2-3 days to process)
