Icebergs Conflict Resolution Workshop

We all face conflict in our lives. Anger is a natural emotion we all experience in response to our basic human needs. We all need to feel safe and secure, to feel a sense of belonging to have control over our environment, and a sense of identity. This workshop is aimed at helping you learn how to manage and express angry feelings effectively. We will talk about what anger is and recognize what triggers our anger. We will discuss how to think and act more calmly during tough moments in life. Come learn how to “keep your cool”.

CHOICES Program

CHOICES is an alcohol and drug program available to students who are concerned about their own alcohol and/or drug use (including tobacco) or the use of those close to them. It is also utilized in a sanction format for students found in violation of the college's policy regarding alcohol and drugs. CHOICES utilizes a variety of approaches to assist students in gaining a better understanding of their alcohol and drug use through the use of self-exploration and reflection. A licensed substance abuse counselor utilizes guided materials that assists students in furthering their knowledge about alcohol and drugs, with a strong emphasis on self-identifying areas which warrant a need for change. Students are offered additional resources with skills that will support their desire for change.

ARC Program

An intervention program designed for those students who have completed the CHOICES Program and have had another substance abuse related incident on campus. This is a sanction individualized program that helps the student to further explore their decision making while developing effective coping skills to help them to deal with whatever stressors that they are facing. This is not a treatment program but a program designed to offer further support to students who perhaps need the extra support to achieve their goals while on campus.

The ARC program helps the student to look at all areas of their lives and how their decision making is having a negative consequence and help them to work on problem solving which will hopefully help them to make better decisions. Students that are referred to the ARC program have very strict guidelines that they need to follow and if they are not in compliance they may be in jeopardy of being suspended or expelled from campus. Students will have access to counseling if needed and are offered additional resources with skills that will support their desire for change.
