University of Warsaw’s Welcome Point is happy to invite all long-term international students to the next edition of ‘Emotions management in epidemic and post-epidemic world’ workshops with Dorota Kobylińska, PhD from the Faculty of Psychology, University of Warsaw.

The coronavirus outbreak is a particularly demanding and stressful time for all people. We often feel confused and unsure of the future. During the workshops you will learn about emotion regulation strategies and find out how to experience positive emotions more often in the context of Polish culture. It will also be a great opportunity to spend your free time in a pleasant, supportive atmosphere!

Our workshops are practical, therefore participants will be asked to express their opinion and work in groups.

When?

December 10-11, 2020, 10:00 am. – 1:15 pm.
Please note that attendance during two days of workshops is required.
