  5. PMC Anxiety Group Series

In efforts to support students in keeping connected with the PMC, each other, and their studies, the PMC has created a series of support, social and study groups open to all PMC-registered students.

These groups range from an opportunity to interact with peers socially, to being a place of accountability for studying.

Be sure to review our meeting guidelines before attending the first session of any group.

PMC Learning Strategy Workshop Series

Join the Paul Menton Centre for our 10-week series of Learning Strategies workshops designed to help you develop your learning skills in a collaborative and supportive environment. Each week, students will have the opportunity to participate in a group check-in, attend an interactive presentation on a different learning strategy, and engage in an activity to put new learning skills into practice.

Topics include:

  • Time management for everyone
  • Understanding procrastination
  • Group work: getting it done
  • Note-taking strategies: assistive technology and beyond
  • Recovering from an academic setback
  • Self-advocacy for students with disabilities

Graduate Student Writing Group

The Graduate Student Writing Group is for any graduate student working on an independent project (seminar or conference paper, grant proposal, journal article, thesis, manuscript, etc).

The group provides a space for accountability for projects without traditional deadlines and the chance for students to set tangible writing goals for the session and for the upcoming week.

Friday Socials

Friday Socials are facilitated by students for students and supported by staff members from PMC.

Participants can check-in, share ideas and discuss inspirations in a time of isolation. Each social has a different focus from overcoming time-management difficulties to making art with typical household items!

ADHD Group

Back by popular demand, starting on September 29, 2022!

Open to all Carleton students, the PMC ADHD group is a place to learn more about ADHD and get practical strategies to work with your brain in a neurodivergence-friendly way, facilitated by PMC Coordinators and Learning Strategists.

PMC Anxiety Group Series

The PMC Anxiety Group provides a space where attendees learn new strategies to manage and change your relationship with anxiety, while connecting with others who share similar experiences.

There is no one-size-fits-all solution for anxiety. The goal of the PMC Anxiety Group is to give you options to choose from. Students can participate as much or as little as they wish. The main thing is to show up!
