Location: Zoom


Positive mental habits are key to building confidence, managing an academic workload, successfully pursuing goals, and coping with the stresses of daily life. In this introductory workshop, participants will develop strategies for building positive mental habits.

During this session, participants will:

  • Explore how their worldviews are shaped and how those views influence thoughts, feelings, and behavior.
  • Learn how self-talk is generated and identify ways self-talk can either help them be more resilient or hurt them and hold them back.
  • Learn how to dispute negative self-talk.

Note: For a workshop that focuses on cognitive distortions and imposter fears, join us for Part 2.
