RRC Virtual Groups
This Fall, the virtual RRC is offering Virtual Groups for students to engage in. Unlike the TCS Skills-Based Groups, the RRC Live Groups are not group therapy, they are spaces for discussion about certain topics, and an opportunity for interested students to talk with RRC staff about resources available to them and learn how to build helpful skills and coping strategies.
RRC Workshops last approximately 20-30 minutes and are conducted in a 1:1 setting with a current RRC Intern. They focus on many different skills and ways to incorporate resilience and mindfulness into different aspects of our lives.
1.Group sessions and 1:1 Workshops will be held via HIPAA compliant Zoom.
2. It is important to have a secure internet connection, to be in a quiet, private space where others do not have access to the group session or your device. Please use headphones for added privacy and protection.
3. Recording of group sessions or use of the chat feature for anything other than logistical issues (e.g., inability to access handout) is not permitted.
4. Video must be on during session. We ask that your audio remain muted unless you are participating.
5. Please use a computer or device that has access to Microsoft Word and YouTube.
6. Please be punctual. You will be admitted to a waiting room. While in the waiting room please change your name to reflect First Name Last Initial, to ensure confidentiality.
