Stress. It plagues us! We are burdened by it. Is there a way to manage stress? Yes, there are some ways that you can reduce stress by changing the way that you perceive situations. While some situations are out of our control, there are ways to manage stress by taking some actions that you may not have considered. Dr. Robert Deluty, Associate Dean of the Graduate School and Associate Professor of Psychology will lead this session on “Addressing Graduate Students Feelings of Stress” on Friday, December 7, 2012, 4:30 PM, UMBC, Public Policy Building, Room 206. In addition to being an administrator and professor, Dr. Deluty is an author and practicing clinical psychologist with a private practice.
This seminar is brought to you by popular demand. Students who came to the seminar last year reported feeling more relaxed after Dr. Deluty’s seminar. Our evaluations, and our research show that graduate students don’t fully utilize services on campus that assist with reducing stress, but that they enjoy coming to seminars and workshops that have a welcoming atmosphere to talk about topics of stress and anxiety. Dr. Deluty’s schedule is very busy, but he is taking time out of his week to spend time with our graduate students. Please take advantage of this special opportunity. Light refreshments will be served. This event is open to all graduate students and their guests.
UMBC students, please RSVP on MyUMBC: http://my.umbc.edu/groups/promise/events/15090.
