Icebergs Conflict Resolution Workshop
Anger is a natural, basic emotion everyone experiences as all people face conflict in their lives. All of us need to feel safe and secure, have a sense of belonging, identity, autonomy, and control over our environment. The center offers this workshop to help you learn how to manage and express angry feelings effectively. We talk about what anger is and recognize what triggers anger. We discuss how to think and act more calmly during challenging moments in life. Come learn how to “keep your cool.”
CHANGES is an alcohol and drug program available to students concerned about their alcohol or drug use - including tobacco or the use of those with whom you intimately interact. The college also utilizes the program in a sanctioned format for students who violate the college's policy regarding alcohol and drugs.
CHANGES Program utilizes various approaches to assist students in gaining a better understanding of their alcohol and drug use through self-exploration and reflection. A licensed substance abuse counselor applies guided materials to help students further their knowledge about alcohol and drugs, with a strong emphasis on self-identifying areas that warrant a need for change. The program offers students additional skill resources that will support their desire for change.
ARC is an intervention program designed for those students who have completed the CHANGES Program and have had another substance abuse-related incident on campus. This initiative is an individualized sanction that helps students further explore their decision-making methods while developing effective coping skills to help them deal with whatever they face. The center did not design this program for treatment but for extra support to students who need it to achieve their goals while on campus.
The ARC Program helps students look at all areas of their lives. They can reflect when decision-making has had a negative consequence and work on problem-solving techniques, leading hopefully to better choices. Students who the college has referred to the ARC Program have stringent guidelines to follow. If a student is not compliant, the college may suspend or expel them from campus. Students will have access to counseling if needed and additional resources that will support their desire for change.
