Initiate, Don’t Procrastinate

Do you procrastinate when it comes to important deadlines and assignments? What about other areas of life? Learn strategies to help you prioritize, motivate yourself and overcome procrastination.  This workshop is for students who have a stalled thesis, incompletes, or are simply not performing up to their potential due to procrastination and poor time management. The workshop acts as a community of support and accountability.  Members will have the opportunity to learn to break free from the negative patterns that may be keeping them from accomplishing their personal and professional goals. If interested, please contact Dr. Kwabena Sankofa for a brief pre-group information session.

Winthrop College of Resilience: The Magic of Inner Strength

A Harry Potter themed 10-week course on personal resilience that uses themes from the books and films to emphasize various components of inner strength.  The course is structured as a closed psycho-educational group experience. (That means that once we have enough people, those folks stay for the whole group.)  The group will address such topics as building relationships, facing crises, managing change, taking decisive action, improving self-worth, and self-care.  We will also tap into student creativity and visual integration by incorporating poignant crafts into sessions.
