Wellness Committee @ Room 201A
Mar 6 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Mission: Our mission is to promote wellness throughout the Antioch (AUS) Community by encouraging self-care and providing students, staff, and faculty opportunities for exploration, acknowledgement, and expression of health affirming experiences.

We start each of our meetings with a discussion about our own experiences of self-care and personal wellness, such as why we’re interested in wellness, what it means to us, and how we’ve been taking care of ourselves between meetings. We also integrate “healthy habits” into each of our meetings!

Meeting times and locations for Winter Quarter 2015:

Wednesday, Jan. 7, 10:30 –  11:30 AM, Room 117
Wednesday, Jan. 21, 10:30 – 11:30 AM, Room 117

Wednesday, Feb. 18, 10:30 – 11:30 AM, Room 117
Friday, March 6, 12 – 1 PM, Room 201A
Wednesday, Feb. 18, 10:30 – 11:30 AM, Room 117

 

A crucial part of our lives as counselors is the ability to care for ourselves, and we believe that this is a skill that needs to be fully integrated into our education. For example, one of our initial goals is to develop a wellness component of New Student Orientation and to provide incoming students with resources to create wellness plans before they begin classes (after all, as we know, once we’ve started a term it can be hard to think about much of anything besides homework!).

There are also challenges that we face within Antioch that we think can be changed to improve the mental and emotional health of everyone in our community. Some of the concerns we’ve heard have been about navigating the personal and professional boundaries between students and advisers, improving general communication between students and faculty, and increasing the options students have for offering feedback and ideas (about classes, the programs, any needs that aren’t being met, etc.).

Our hope for this committee is that it will be an opportunity to start addressing all these things and more.

Christian Perspectives in Practice
Mar 7 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm

Christian Perspectives in Practice aims to promote personal and professional growth centered on beliefs in Jesus Christ as members seek to integrate their faith in God and His love for all people. These beliefs guide us in theory, technique, and development as professionals in the fields of counseling and education. We strive to support students with opportunities that will enhance our education through additional Christian counseling resources, fellowship, and spiritual support for our members. As we align ourselves with God’s vision for our lives, we welcome the opportunity to walk with others on their individual journeys, regardless of their beliefs.
