The Cognitive Behavioral Techniques for Assisting Students

Faculty know that students are exposed to stressors as part of higher education. Why do some students manage this stress well? Why do others become quickly overwhelmed? Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) is based on the idea that thoughts, feelings and behaviors influence each other and that feeling stressed or depressed can be made worse by ways of thinking and behaving that are not positive or are distorted. CBT techniques are simple to learn and teach and can help students manage stress. In this session, we will explore awareness of mood and automatic thoughts and work with cognitive refraining techniques.
