This brochure provides helpful hints for incorporating more humor into your day and leading a more joyous lifestyle.

Loss  Brochure

Dealing with Loss

Grief is a natural response to loss. Over the course of our lifetime, we become attached to people, pets, or other significant things. When these are removed from us, it can feel very unsettling and painful. This brochure addresses the impact of loss and ways to deal with it.

Relationship Violence  Brochure

Relationship Violence: The Deadly Truth

Violence within relationships is a serious problem that undermines one's sense of safety and value. Relationship violence is not unique to a specific social group; it occurs within all cultures, socioeconomic statuses, age groups, and sexual orientations. This brochure addresses the scope of the problem and steps toward healing.

Sexual Addiction Brochure

Help for Sexual Addiction

Sexual addiction is a controversial area in the professional arena. Although there is not a specific classification in the Diagnostic Statistical Manual, many believe that its compulsive pattern is unique and requires different treatment from other addictive behaviors. This brochure provides an understanding of sexual addiction and resources for dealing with it.

Stress  Brochure

Are You Stressed? Help for Managing Stress and Anxiety

Stress is an important factor in managing our everyday demands. Eustress (positive stress) is when we have adequate resources (financial, emotional, physical, etc.) to meet the demands in our life. We are motivated to navigate our day. Distress (negative stress) occurs when our resources are inadequate and feel depleted, anxious, or out-of-control. This brochure provides tips for dealing with stress of daily living and maximizing one's life through self-care practices.

International Student  Brochure

Services for International Students

Studying abroad is a unique experience. International students studying abroad are able to contribute in many ways by engaging in campus events, classroom discussions and social settings. Students can teach others about their nation and culture, which makes our university a richer place to learn and grow. However, studying abroad can also be challenging. Students may feel the separation from family and friends. They may feel isolated and lack resources and support. Some adjustment is natural and should; however, if those feelings and symptoms persist, it may warrant a consultation. Should additional support be helpful during this adjustment, contact the Psychological Services Center at 352-4488 to arrange consultation with a service provider.
