Anxiety Toolbox (3-week workshop series) Wednesday's at 3-4 p.m. starting February 15th for Spring 2023

Anxiety Toolbox is a three-part series that aims to give you knowledge and tools to effectively deal with your anxiety. We discuss what anxiety is, how it is different from everyday stress, and how you can respond to unhelpful thoughts that perpetuate anxiety. We will meet weekly to have short discussions and in-class exercises as well as at-home exercises, all designed to help you practice skills learned through the sessions. The work you do in each session builds upon itself, so you are expected attend all three scheduled sessions.
