Workshops (single session)

What is a Workshop? Facilitated by a Counseling and Mental Health clinician, workshops are an opportunity to learn about a mental health topic alongside other USC students. Workshops are different from Group Therapy, which are a very useful psychotherapy format as part of ongoing treatment. Workshops are an easy and accessible way to gain information and learn coping skills to manage common concerns.
