[Cancelled] ‘Look after your friend’-training part 2

Your time as a student can be a lot of fun, but it can also be challenging sometimes. If things are not going so well for you, chances are great you first talk to your friends about it before talking to anyone else. After all, your friends are approachable and are in the same stage of life as you, facing the same difficulties. However, as a friend this might sometimes be difficult and raise a lot of questions: ‘how can I help my friend without letting it affect myself too much?’, ‘how can I listen to someone in a way that makes them feel heard?’, ‘what does a certain diagnosis actually mean?’, and many more.

To help out with these type of questions and struggles, the psychologists of the UT have developed a training in collaboration with the Student Union. In this training, given by two student trainers, several topics will be discussed:

Practical tips on looking after your friend

Supporting a friend through the student journey

Understanding your friend’s diagnosis

Knowing your services: getting professional help in- and outside of the UT

The training consists of 2 sessions of 1,5 hours, which complement each other. You will be asked to do a short preparation beforehand and you will also receive a guide containing extensive information on the topic. The training will be given fully in English.

Do you want to know more about the content of the training? Check out the Canvas page, containing more information.

Note: If you want to be present at this session you have to enrol for part 1 for the workshop on Thursday the 10th of June.

Unfortunately, you cannot enroll for this activity anymore, as the enrollment period has ended.
