Mandatory (option 2)
Track: Leadership

November 17th, 2016 at 6pm

As a student it is easy to become focused on the day to day activities and challenges.  At some point it is helpful to consider what you want out of life and how that may or may not occur.  What does it mean to live a good life?  What represents success for you?  Can you influence the outcomes now?  How so?  We will spend our workshop thinking through some of these topics, discuss what it means to be aware of your choices and help spur some thought on what comes after college and how your choices today might impact the future.  

Facilitator: Adam Buchwald: L&C CIO and Associate VP

Location: Templeton- Thayer 

 

Rolling with Resistance: Tools for Anyone to help Create Change
Mandatory
Track: Wellness

October 26th, 2016 at 6pm

Motivational Interviewing (MI) was originally developed to help clinicians who work with clients struggling with addiction. In MI, the client has free will and can choose whether or not to change behavior.  The goal of MI is to help the other person clarify their goals and values, and decide if their behavior is in line with those goals and values.  They can then make the decisions that works for them. This workshop will share the basics of MI and how to implement these in fostering healthy relationships and consultation of your friends/colleagues feelings. We will focus on the personal and specific contexts where you can be a supportive listener and advocate for your friends, family, and colleagues.
