What will we do?
One of the most important relationships you'll ever have is with yourself. But this doesn't always pan out in practice. Sometimes due to the society around us, our own mental health, or our lack of appropriate coping skills, this relationship doesn't always thrive as much as it could. In this course, through a semi-structured curriculum, guided discussions, and activities, we will explore ways to foster our relationship with ourselves and become more empowered in the process.

This course has been updated based on feedback from your peers to be increasingly relevant to the current experiences of students. We welcome those who have taken this course before and newcomers alike!

What will you learn?
  • To appreciate the diversity and complexity of our shared human experiences
  • How to develop meaningful and healthy connections with ourselves and others
  • Ways to utilize skills like journaling, meditation, and making wellness plans
  • How to develop and apply self-advocacy and resiliency skills
  • How to foster self-esteem, self-confidence, and self-compassion
