• Do you feel that stress is bothering you more than is good for you?
  • Do you think you should do something about it?

Student Services is offering a 2 session workshop about stress management for international students. This workshop is based on both mindfulness and  cognitive/behavioral therapy. During the mindfulness exercises you practice to focus your attention. This will help you to be aware of what is going on in each moment and to relax obsessive thinking.  In this way you can gain a broader and more accepting view on your thoughts and feelings. Skills in constructive thinking will help you to identify unrealistic and unhelpful thoughts. In this workshop you will practice to change them into thoughts that are more realistic and beneficial for you.

During the workshop we exchange experiences to also learn from each other. You are expected to do some homework between the two sessions, which takes about 30-45 minutes daily.

The workshop will take place on:

  • Friday, 26 October, 10.30 am till 12.30 pm
  • Friday, 9 November,  10.30 am till 12.30 pm. 

You have to attend both sessions.

This workshop is open to international students at Utrecht University. To apply use this form.

The workshop will be guided in English by Jacky Limvers and Jerre Mijnarends (from Advising and Counselling).
