It is not possible to apply for this workshop anymore. A new, 2 hour, workshop for internationals will be planned during the Well being week in the beginning of May. The precise date and location will be published on this page as soon as possible.

  • 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.

You have to attend both sessions.

This workshop is open to international students at Utrecht University.

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