Stress Management Outreach Presentations
Faculty and Staff
Stress is a common issue, so the Student Counseling Center has developed presentations on stress management to address the concerns of students, faculty, and staff.
Our stress management presentations provide interactive discussions about the warning signs of stress, the physiological basis of stress, what causes stress, and how to cope with stress. In addition, biofeedback is introduced to demonstrate the mind/body connection and provides participants with an opportunity to see visual examples of what happens in the body under various levels of stress and relaxation.
These presentations also provide a great example of what the MindSpa has to offer. Students, faculty, and staff alike have indicated that presentations with the biofeedback programs are one of their favorite presentations provided by the Student Counseling Center!
- All presentations are structured to be presented within a 50-minute class unless otherwise stated.

Through our certified QPR Gatekeeper training students, faculty, and staff can learn the warning signs for suicide, what to say to someone who is at risk for suicide, and where and how to refer someone who is suicidal for help. Talking about suicide is difficult, but QPR Gatekeepers are empowered to help those who may be in desperate need. Training usually lasts 1.5 hours.
