Our programming:


Communication

Assertiveness:  Practical Techniques for Personal Success

Everyone has the potential to be a strong and confident communicator. Being assertive can be challenging for many people, but will lead to more effective communication, and improved relationships. In this program students will have a chance to explore different communication styles, reflect on their own style of communication, and discover strategies they can use to become more assertive.

Conflict Confidence

Conflict is a common, inevitable part of life. Having the ability to resolve conflict effectively can prevent unnecessary stress, worry, avoidance, or damaged relationships.  Gaining the confidence to effectively approach interpersonal conflict can positively impact our overall well-being. Students will engage in a discussion about their current approach to managing conflict, explore the benefit of resolving conflicts, and build the skills that can turn conflicts into opportunities.

 


Financial Management

Are you on the Right Cash Course?

Many college students have minimal skills in managing their money and debt. The CASH (Create a Savings Habit) program gives an excellent overview of budgeting, saving, debt, and money management.

 


Sexual Well-Being

Our goal is to educate UNH students about sexual health by providing accurate information so that students can make informed decisions. Our sexual health programming is applicable to students who are sexually active or who are abstinent. We approach our programming with sex positivity and don’t consider any question or topic taboo. Free condoms and lubrication will be provided at all sexual health programs.

Sexual Decision Making

Sex doesn’t just happen. Hook ups don’t just happen. In this program, participants will participate in an interactive activity that illustrates how feelings, thoughts, communication, gender roles, values, friends and the environment can impact sexual decision making.

Sexual Pleasure, Oh Yes!

Sex is meant to be pleasurable. In this program, participants will be introduced to the health benefits of sexual pleasure and how they can explore their own sexual preferences to find what turns them on and off. Sex toys demonstrations will be used to help explain sexual pleasure and anatomy. There will be lots of buzz about this program because it is highly interactive. Giggles, awe and lots of questions welcomed!

 


Stress

You Can't Pour from an Empty Cup:  Wellness & Stress

Our lives are full of opportunities and responsibilities. This program offers students a way to look at their personal wellness as a way to better understand and cope with stress.  Participants will learn about the 8 dimensions of wellness, and be guided through creative activities to help them become more aware of just how full their lives are and what they can do to actively bring more balance to their well-being.

2-Minute Stress Relievers

All it takes is 2 minutes – or even less – to tap out of the stress response and into the relaxation response. You’ll learn and practice stress and relaxation techniques that can be used in and outside of the classroom to minimize the negative effects of stress.

Goal Setting

Set yourself up for success by setting goals that are appropriate for where you are right here, right now. This interactive workshop will walk participants through the process of creating specific goals and habits to live a life that is meaningful and fulfilling.

Self-Compassion: Treat Yourself Like You Would a Friend

The ability to be kind to yourself will help you feel better in all areas of your well-being, including your emotional wellness. Participants will be introduced to the science behind self-compassion and will practice ways they can offer themselves more tenderness and clarity to navigate difficult times.

 


Wellness

Power Up!

Meet with staff from the Hamel Recreation Center and Health & Wellness for an informative (and fun!) panel discussion with plenty of opportunity for questions and answers.  Participants will gain an understanding of how physical activity, nutrition, sleep and coping with stress all work in tandem.  This 50-minute program will provide students with information on how to access and best use nutrition, recreation, and wellness programs at UNH to meet their goals. 

 


Design Your Own Program

Our staff is always looking to run new programs! If you have a program/topical idea in mind we can sit down with you to discuss your ideas and design a program that is tailored to your specific audience and goals. We request that you give us at least 2-3 weeks to make this happen. This time frame includes time to meet with you individually.
