Engage with others at NC State to build skills for a happy, healthy campus

The Counseling Center empowers students by offering free workshops.

Our workshops help build skills to cope with your concerns — from dealing with anxiety to improving relationships and more. 

Browse upcoming workshops below. To sign up or for more information, call 919.515.2423.

What to expect during a workshop

Our workshops use a 3-sessions model (unless otherwise stated). Teaching workshops over the course of several sessions allows you time to learn the concepts with time to practice between sessions. 

Many people feel a little anxious about participating in a workshop with other people; participation is encouraged but optional. The facilitators respect each participant’s right to share only what they are comfortable sharing and never require you to share sensitive or potentially embarrassing information about yourself. 

To build skills, you need to regularly practice. This means there are exercises and skills you’re encouraged to practice and try outside of the workshop.

We just ask that you bring yourself and your workbook each week so you can continue to build your skillset to achieve what you set out to do and be your best self.
