Sleep Improvement Workshop
Balancing life’s commitments can be a challenge, and college students often find it especially difficult to establish habits that foster effective sleep. Recent research has suggested that inadequate sleep can contribute to impaired academic performance, problems with mood and concentration, as well as weight gain. The Sleep Improvement Workshop is designed to address a core component of wellness and teach students skills to enhance their quality of sleep. Over the course of three weeks, with the option of an additional follow-up session, members of the group will learn to analyze their sleeping habits. Group members will also receive education about sleep hygiene and learn to implement activities in their daily routine that promote more effective sleeping.
The group will meet on October 8th, 15th, and 22nd starting at 3:30pm in Hiner 212. If you are interested in the group and/or have questions, please contact Dr. Jenny Glass at 434.395.2409.
Grief and Loss Support Group
College campuses can be a difficult environment to find a place to stop and reflect on the impact of losing someone. Students can often experience difficulties after losing someone, such as isolation and depression, since healing from grief is not an easy process. Sometimes the process can be long and painful. This grief group is designed to help students set aside a time and place to reflect, remember, and heal. This group provides a confidential and safe environment for students to explore their grief. We hope to help students along their journey towards healing by establishing a supportive place for students to discuss their loss.
The group meets on Tuesdays starting at 3:30pm in CAPS's group room. If you are interested in the group and/or have questions, please contact Dr. Holsinger at 434.395.2409 or longwoodCAPS@longwood.edu.
College is a time of excitement, challenge, and growth—socially as well as academically. It may be difficult to feel comfortable at times. Loneliness and fear are common, normal feelings that many students experience. Succeed Socially is a group designed to help make the process of forming friendships a little easier. Each week, the group will focus on learning social skills to enhance and build friendships and explore new ways of being socially engaged on campus.
If you are interested in the group and/or have questions, please contact Dr. Davino at 434.395.2409.
Stress and Anxiety Management Group
This group is designed for people who have symptoms related to stress and anxiety and are seeking support and learning methods to cope with stress. This is a support group where students who suffer from stress and anxiety can attend and get support and constructive feedback from other students who suffer with problems related to stress/anxiety. Counselors also will tailor and present psychoeducational information on how to manage stress/anxiety at the request of the group. The group is a great place to get support from counselors and fellow students for issues related to stress/anxiety.
If you are interested in the group and/or have questions, please contact Dr. David Davino at 434-395-2409.
