19 Sep 2023 (Tue)


11:00 am - 12:30 pm 


The social connections we make during university study can become valuable networks of support for years to come. However, we may at times be held back or overwhelmed by social anxiety - a prevalent yet rarely discussed challenge faced by many university students.

In this workshop, you will: 

  • Learn common features of social anxiety that often hold students back from making social connections and their struggles in building relationships
  • Explore practical strategies drawn from evidence-based psychological approaches to help you overcome social challenges and gradually become more socially engaged in university
  • Practice techniques to relax yourself, build positive self-talk, and gradually approach social situations
  • Receive tips for setting social goals, talking small steps to expand social circle, initiating, and maintaining relationships
  • Be empowered, uplifted, and equipped with tools to build relationships, sense of belonging, and the community you desire
