In this workshop Dr. Laffier discussed the common challenges college and university students experience in post-secondary, such as stress and anxiety. Helpful strategies for post-secondary students were reviewed by Dr. Laffier, a registered therapist. In addition, ideas from post-secondary students, who experienced struggles and helpful strategies, were shared. There was time for a Q&A at the end of the session for students to ask questions and share their own ideas.
