The FITA program is running a group workshop in the winter 2023 semester called Thriving in Action (TIA), based around principles of positive psychology. This group will be facilitated by Genna Pearce, Acting Manager and Registered Psychotherapist and Alley St. Louis, Program Coordinator. This group focuses on helping students to be more mindful, optimistic, accepting of themselves, and reach goals. Students will be expected to attend 8 weekly groups over the 2023 winter semester, starting Thursday, February 9th and ending on Thursday, April 6th. This workshop will be taking place virtually over Microsoft Teams and will be held from 1:00 – 3:00 pm. This is a good opportunity for students finishing off their 12 sessions with FITA but would like continued support. Non-FITA students are also welcome to inquire.

 

The From Intention to Action (FITA) program supports undergraduate and graduate students in the often stressful university experience. We help students to better manage stress and improve their academic performance, by navigating the personal stressors that can often get in the way of school. FIT: Action students meet 1-on-1 with a Coordinator for 1 hour every week for 12 consecutive weeks. Our Coordinators are staff members or Master’s-level interns trained in counseling and psychotherapy.

Often students feel overwhelmed and aren’t sure where to go. The most common ways we help are supportive counseling, stress management, coping skills, time management, and learning strategies.
