Groups and seminars

Do you feel stressed by expectations, deadlines, and a high workload? Do you have a tendency to procrastinate? Are you interested in relaxing in the present rather than feeling anxious about the past or future? Are you critical of yourself or have irrational thoughts that influence your emotions? Are you new in Sweden and struggling with the climate and darkness? Are you feeling lonely? We provide tools to improve your situation and find a better balance in life, as well as opportunities to meet new people.

All of our groups and seminars are free and developed based on the kind of help students most often request when they contact us. They are held in English and open to both Swedish and international students.

  • All meetings will be via Zoom unless otherwise notified.
  • A course can be cancelled if there are too few registered.

BRIEF SEMINARS & GROUP DISCUSSIONS: 4 TOPICS

Life as a student is not always easy and it can be lonely, especially in these very different times where there is more isolation. With distance learning and “working from home” it can be a challenge to manage one’s time and to separate different aspects of life, like work from play, etc. Join our brief seminars to engage in group discussions and enjoy the benefits of sharing with peers. You will get the opportunity to meet others with similar concerns and get some answers and tips. You will also receive information, worksheets, along with book and app tips. 

You are welcome to sign up for whichever seminar is of interest, including all of them. There is a 16 person limit per seminar, so there may be a queue. 

The four topics: 

1. Self-care, Sleep, and Exercise – Tuesday, 29 September at 14:30 – 16:00.
Do you need encouragement to take better care of yourself or perhaps help with sleep issues?
2. Stress Management – Tuesday, 6 October at 14:30 – 16:00.
Do you feel stressed by expectations, deadlines, and a high workload?
3. Relaxation and Mindfulness – Tuesday, 13 October at 14:30 – 16:00.
Do you want some tools for relaxation and for living "in the now"?
4. Perfectionism and Self-Compassion – Tuesday, 20 October at 14:30 – 16:00.
Do you have unrealistic expectations of yourself? Are you overly self-critical or have irrational thoughts that influence your emotions?

Where: Online via Zoom.
Registration: Send an email to reception@sh.uu.se and you will receive a Doodle in which you can choose your topics of interest. Open from 26 August through 16 October.
