You Got This (YGT) Series
You Got This (YGT) consists of psycho-educational, skill building workshops designed to help build personal awareness, develop coping skills and promote self-care. We offer workshops on Mindfulness, Coping with Anxiety and Healing from Trauma. Workshops are offered throughout the quarter and free to registered UC Davis students.
The Mindfulness is a three-part workshop series that combines evidence-based practices for more skillful management of a variety of concerns. Participants will practice mindfulness techniques in a low pressure, supportive environment. Each module of the series is aimed at improving skills in the major categories of Recognition, Insight, and Openness (RIO) which are the titles that correspond to each module. The modules are sequential and participants that attend each of the three separate workshops and in the order of RIO, will gain the most benefits. It is ideal to have one week between the RIO modules in order to practice newly acquired skills. Registration is required and can be done any time prior to the start of the workshop
Coping with Anxiety is a three-part workshop series that looks at anxiety through the lens of connection with the mind, body and present moment. This series utilizes evidence-based practices for coping with anxiety. The modules are sequential and participants that attend each of the three separate workshops will gain the most benefits. As part of this series, participants will learn about the relationship between anxiety and thinking styles, in which participants understand how their thoughts, emotions, and behavior are linked. Participants will also learn about mindfulness, practice techniques and how to incorporate into daily routine. In addition, participants will learn relaxation techniques that bring calmness and grounding to them. Participants will also learn how to improve sleep, impact of food on anxiety, and other resources available at Counseling Services for anxiety management. We ask that you register for the series that matches your academic class.
