New Student Wellness Association Introduced

Students in the Department of Applied Psychology have launched a new groupthe Student Wellness Association, dedicated to the advancement of student wellness and self-care strategies. Its goal is to help students learn to take care of themselves so they will be better able to do their work as  therapists and caregivers.

Just as important, the association is an opportunity for students from all programs and departments to get together, something that’s not easy on a commuter campus.

At the outset, the leadership of the association comprises at least two students from the Department of Applied Psychologyno more than one student each from the programs of Marriage and Family Therapy, Clinical Mental Health Counseling, and Dance/Movement Therapy. But membership and events are open to all AUNE students and the wider community of clinicians and alumni outside of the university.

The group is planning educational seminars, skill-building events, and ways for students to connect with their colleagues:

•Motivational Interviewing Seminar, 9 a.m. to noon, Saturday, April 5. Taught by Kevin Lyness, associate professor, Department of Applied Psychology.

•Wellness for the Soul Weary video presentation, 11:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m., Tuesday, April 15.

•DSM-V: Overview, Diagnosis, and Key Changes, 8:30 a.m. to 5p.m., Saturday, April 26.
