  • Happiness Group

    What is happiness?
    How is it achieved? 
    Is it something that you can train for? 

    Join us for a 7-week series exploring the Psychology of Happiness. Topics include how to retrain the brain to recognize possibility and enhance productivity; how to leverage mindsets to enable increased success and fulfillment; and how to sustain lasting change regardless of willpower.

    Please join us on Thursdays the rest of Spring semester from 2-3pm in Olin 303. If you’re interested in joining this group, you can either drop in to the sessions. Please email the Wellness Center at wellness@ursinus.edu or call 610-409-3100 with questions. 

  • Stress Management Group

    The Wellness Center is providing a stress management group this semester. The objective of this group is to create a safe space in which students can learn and develop stress management and resilience strategies for navigating current stressors.

    This group is a good fit for students who experience difficulty with overwhelming anxiety, emotions, and other forms of psychological discomfort.

    Group members are encouraged to participate in all of the one-hour sessions for four weeks, but are allowed to drop in and out as necessary.

    The group is on Wednesdays the rest of the Spring semester from 12-1 p.m. in Bomberger 128. You can drop in to the group sessions or email wellness@ursinus.edu if you have questions.

  • Trans & Gender Non-Binary Support Group

    Do you identify as transgender, gender non-binary, questioning, or other gender variant identity?  

    Want to share with other students who identify in this way too?  

    We’re starting a Wellness group this semester to do just that!

    Ursinus’s Wellness Center invites you to join our Trans/Gender-Non-Binary Support Group.  Ursinus students who identify as transgender, gender non-binary, questioning, or other gender variant identity are welcome to join this is student-centered support group.  We will come together to explore gender identity and support one another on the issues that may impact trans college students. 

    We are hoping to hold our first meeting within the early weeks of February and will aim to run through the remainder of the Spring 2019 semester.  Regarding specific dates and times, we will attempt to choose a recurring weekday and time that will accommodate as many interested students as possible.  We are asking for a commitment to attend all group sessions this semester with the understanding that situations do arise where you may need to be absent.  All sessions are free and confidential.

    Please email the Wellness Center at wellness@ursinus.edu to arrange a pre-group meeting to discuss whether this group matches your needs and to discuss your available days and times!
