Groups and seminars

Do you have a tendency to procrastinate? Are you new in Sweden, are you going to study abroad? Do you feel stressed by expectations, deadlines, and a high workload? Are you critical of yourself or have irrational thoughts that influence your emotions? We give you tools to improve your situation and find a better balance in life.

All of our groups and seminars are free and developed based on the kind of help the students most often request when they contact us.

Coping with Corona - Making the best of it

There are many things we can’t affect in these uncertain times, but there is a lot that we can do. Do you want to discuss the circumstances of covid-19 with international peers? With distance learning and “working from home” it can be a challenge to manage one’s time and to separate different aspects of life. Are you interested in how to make the best of this situation?

Please join us to hear a short introduction with plenty of time for peer discussion. There will be a maximum of 12 participants and if the interest is great, we will try to hold additional opportunities. We extend a warm welcome!

When: 18th of May, 10:00-11:00
Where: digital Zoom meeting
How: You will receive a link to the Zoom meeting after you have registered via email to reception@sh.uu.se. Sign-up NOW through the 14th of May.

Brief seminars & group discussions: 5 topics

Life as a student is not always easy and it can be lonely even though you are surrounded by many other students. Come to our brief seminars, engage in group discussions and enjoy the benefits of sharing with peers. You will get the opportunity to meet others with similar concerns and get some answers and tips. You will also receive information, worksheets and book & app tips.

Although this is not a therapy group, we hope to create a respectful atmosphere where we can share and discuss with the expectation that what is said in the group, stays in the group. You are welcome to sign up for whichever seminar is of interest. At the same time, we encourage you to attend all of them to help create a supportive group. There is an 18 person limit per seminar, so there may be a queue.

Note! Some seminars will be available to watch online! 

TOPICS: 

  • Cultural adjustment 
    Do you study with students from different cultures? Are you new in Sweden? Maybe you are going to study abroad. 
  • Self-care, sleep and exercise

  • Stress management
