All students and employees have access to self-help workshops.

FEAR-less Emotion Management

A 45-minute  Zoom workshop with Dallas L. Johnson, Ph.D., is held at 2:00 p.m. each Tuesday starting April 27 through July 13.

In this workshop, you will learn how the brain and body respond to real and perceived physical and emotional threats. This response is sometimes called the fear response and often contributes to the development of anxiety, depression, trauma, and suicide ideation. You will learn strategies to better manage this fear response in order to improve your overall well-being. You can also learn more about this approach by going to the free website  https://sites.google.com/view/fear-less (please note the fear-less website and content is the sole responsibility of Dallas L. Johnson).

Stress and Anxiety Management

A 45-minute  Zoom workshop with Ben Rolph, LMFT, held at 3:15 p.m. each Wednesday starting April 28 through July 14.

This workshop is geared toward helping individuals learn healthy ways to manage and reduce physical, mental, and emotional tension in a variety of settings and situations using the art of acceptance, appreciation, and invitation.

Get Grit

You know that sport you convinced yourself you were bad at after one season? Or the piano piece you could never master? What about the subject in school you deemed impossible? Most of us have at least one thing we believe we are inherently bad at. Angela Duckworth’s groundbreaking research on Grit busts this myth!

Join the social work interns on Tuesdays from 6-7 PM on  Zoom to unlock the power of passion and perseverance that holds the key to success. This workshop is a five-part series that will run two times during the semester. The first is from April 27–May 25 and the second is from June 8–July 6.

*Note: Please be aware that workshops are not therapy. They are self-help classes. If you are looking for personal mental health therapy or personal advice please contact the BYU-Idaho Counseling Center ( 208-496-9370) to schedule to meet with a mental health provider. If you need emergency help please refer to the crisis box on the previous page.
