The Counselling Centre

Workshops & Presentations

Attending workshops and presentations are an effective way to learn skills and tools for managing the problems that affect your daily life, especially at university. Throughout the year, The Counselling Centre hosts many workshops and presentations for students, faculty and staff, which you can find and register for through the calendar on our homepage. Topics can range from Stress Management to How to Support Your fellow Peers or Students and are offered in different degrees of interactivity (from lecture style, to workshop style with hands-on participation). A list of workshops that have been offered in the past for students can be found below.

We are also always open to your suggestions for future workshops. If you would like to give a suggestion or have any questions, please email counselling@smu.ca
