Look after your friend workshop

The ‘Look after your friend’ is a training on wellbeing offered by the UT psychologists in collaboration with the Student Union. Student wellbeing is a topic that is becoming more and more important. Therefore we are participating in this training, together with Daedalus and Newton.

Student life can be a lot of fun but it can also be difficult sometimes. A lot of students who experience problems regarding their wellbeing, such as stress, depression or anxiety, first turn to their friends to talk about it before talking to anyone else. This training will teach you how to help your friends in these circumstances. The training will answer the following questions:  ‘how can I help my friend without letting it affect myself too much?’, ‘how can I listen to someone in a way that makes them feel heard?’, ‘what does a certain diagnosis actually mean?’, and many more.

The training consists of 2 sessions of both 1,5 hours, on Tuesday 30 November from 16:30 until 18:00 and on Monday 13 December from 16:30 until 18:00, which are complementing and can therefore not be followed separately. You will be asked to do a short preparation beforehand and you will also receive a guide containing extensive information on the topic. The training will be given fully in English.
During these two sessions, the following topics will be discussed:

  • Practical tips on looking after your friend
  • Supporting a friend through the student journey
  • Understanding your friend’s diagnosis
  • Knowing your services: getting professional help in- and outside of the UT
