Wellness Workshops by ACT for its students
To mark the completion of the first academic year of the reintroduction of the Psychology degree, ACT offered two wellness workshops to its students. The workshops were held at the end of May and aimed to help the students in view of their final exams.
The first workshop was coordinated by Dr. Elina Kazi, a psychologist for the Parent Academy, Life Long Learning at ACT, who discussed the methodology and the secrets of time management. Dr. Kazi incorporated exercises into her presentation that highlighted ways in which the attendees could free up their time through the goal recognition process.
The second workshop coordinated by Ms. Nelly Florentin, a psychologist at ACT’s Counseling Center, discussed stress management. During this experiential workshop, the participants had the chance to discuss daily stressors, to recognize common triggers and to exchange ideas regarding coping mechanisms. It was a great opportunity for them to further develop their positive thinking patterns in order to manage daily stress more effectively.
After the positive response and enthusiasm shown from both students and faculty, ACT aims at organizing many similar workshops and presentations during the next academic year.
