Session two: HOW TO HELP YOUR FRIENDS WHO AREN'T ENJOYING UNIVERSITY
It is very common for students to struggle at university, not just academically but emotionally. In this seminar, Dr Suzanne Zeedyk will explore steps that students can take to support their friends, and themselves, when difficulty occurs. She will draw on scientific discoveries that show us how essential relationships are -- and how the reassurance of emotional connection affects our very biology. She will draw on her metaphor of Sabre Tooth Tigers and Teddy Bears to bring this information to life. The seminar will be delivered particularly with students in mind, although everyone is welcome. You need bring no knowledge or experience of this area. Curiosity is more than sufficient!
