Embodied Consciousness: The Body as Holder of Our Experiences and Emotions

Wed, Jul 15 2020, 12:30 PM - 01:30 PM
/ Location: Google Meet: Click Flyer to RSVP!

Join co-facilitators and fellow graduate students Veronica Franco (Graduate Mental Health Peer) and Julia McClenon (International Grad Peer) in the second part of the workshop series "International Perspectives on Embodied Consciousness" ​where we will discuss embodied cognition and the importance of listening to our bodies.

You do not need to have attended the first workshop to drop in for this one!

Students will learn how our bodies are “intelligent” and worth listening to. We will incorporate activities and resources on how students can become more attuned to their bodies and learn to identify their emotions not only as residing in the head, but as senses within the body.

Discussion will be facilitated around how emotions are not “just” psychic constructs, and psychoeducation will be provided on how anxiety, depression, and trauma impact one’s well-being and physical body.

RSVP today!
