During this time of temporary suspension of on-site instruction, we will be providing updates on both our in process and future CSI groups. Please continue to utilize our Wellness Resources
and take a look at the information below.
Message to students: We know that many of you were somewhere in the process of an 8 week support group, and have not been able to finish yet. We want to encourage you to use some of the skills and concepts that we learn in our groups. For instance, we all read the Serenity Poem each week that says, “Grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference” Certainly it feels like there is a lot we don’t have control over during this COVID 19 situation, but let’s take a look at those things we DO have control over (our attitude and actions, helping others, staying healthy and active, being an engaged learner, etc) and take some steps to change the things that we CAN!
We also work on listening skills, communication skills and caring skills in our groups. And not being judgmental. Lets use this time to listen well to our friends, family and people we care about to ask how they are doing, what they need from us and how we can get to know and understand them better.
Last of all, your Group Facilitators may be trying to get in touch with you to check in, they would love to see how you are doing. If you are trying to get hold of one of them and do not remember their full name to email them, simply email me at [email protected]
. Simply tell me your name and what school you are at and when your group meets and I can look up their names for you to email. We are all here for you and want you to know you are cared about. We will all get through this together and come out as better, stronger people I believe!
