Life Management Series for Students: Stuck in the Middle – Juggling School and Family Life

Date: Thursday, January 24, 2019
Time: 12:00 – 1:30 pm
Location: Koffler Student Services Centre, 214 College St., Room 313

A workshop series designed to empower students to find a better balance between academic life and caring for others.

“Stuck in the Middle” is a self-discovery session on dealing with constant challenges of having family responsibilities, working and being a student. This self-awareness session will help you understand the feelings of guilt that arise when juggling your role as a student and not always having enough time to spend with your children and/or your loved ones. It’s for everyone who feels overwhelmed.

Most of the exercises are done in pairs and within the group. In this session you will discover your patterns of ‘stuckness’ and learn to convert feelings of being overwhelmed into action, energy and change.

Facilitator: Anna Wesolinska is a Gestalt psychotherapist who has a private practice and has been running workshops at the Gestalt Institute of Toronto, the North York Women’s Centre, and the Family Care Office.

Pizza lunch will be provided.

Registration required. University of Toronto students are welcome. Please let us know if you have any mobility challenges so we can accommodate your needs.
