first_imgEvery semester, the University Counseling Center (UCC) hosts several student support groups ranging from the “International Student Support Group” to “Not the Perfect Family” to the “Social Anxiety Group.”“It’s a way for people with a specific issue or problem to get support from one another and to find ways of coping,” Peter Barnes, a psychologist with the UCC, said.All the support groups are held in the UCC. The groups are open to both undergraduate and graduate students, and Barnes has found that both groups of students use them equally. He said the UCC tries to balance the groups in terms of males and females.To join a group, Barnes said, students should schedule an initial assessment with a UCC counselor who can then discuss whether a group might be a recommended form of treatment for a student.Barnes said group treatment can sometimes be “the treatment of choice for certain issues.” This is especially true of the Social Anxiety Group — which Barnes runs — since it gives students the chance to speak in public, something that is often scary for them, he said.“It’s not a secondary or second-rate form of treatment,” Barnes said.The Social Anxiety Group includes six to eight people a semester, which Barnes said is typical of the groups. When the UCC receives enough people for a group, it will close the group to new members, but if it is unable to get enough people in the group, it will not offer the group for the semester, Barnes said. He said the point at which either one of these things occur is typically around fall break.Barnes said the “Be Real” group is a new group being offered this semester, but all the groups encourage authenticity.“One of the things we challenge group members to do is be real and authentic,” he said. “ … Group offers a chance for people to be real and authentic, which can be healing.”Barnes said one key benefit to groups is that it shows students the universality of suffering.“I think the thing Notre Dame students struggle with is letting themselves ask for help,” he said. “ … One of the benefits of group is learning you’re not alone. Hopefully students realize pain and struggles are part of the human experience.”Barnes said social media tends to paint a different picture of student health than the data shows, and he hopes groups can “debunk the myth” that all students are happy all the time.At the same time, Barnes said it can be scary to join a group since there is inherent risk.“When you put something out, you don’t know how people will respond,” he said. “That’s where the growth is — where it’s scary and uncomfortable.”Barnes also said outside of groups, friends should try to support each other by listening.“One of the most important things you can do for another is listen,” he said. “You don’t have to fix their problems.”Tags: group therapy, Mental health, University Counseling Centerlast_img read more

first_img Loading… The 55-year-old former central defender told the BBC the FA had a zero-tolerance attitude to racism and ministers should adopt the same policy. Reported incidents of racist abuse in English football rose by 43 percent in 2018-19 compared to the previous season, according to campaign group Kick It Out. “We in football are giving off a message about zero tolerance,” said Elliott, who is the FA’s inclusion advisory board chief. “The government has to be alongside.” Manchester City and England striker Raheem Sterling has been highly praised for speaking out on racism. Elliott said it was important that players received support, with potential benefits within football and society at large.Advertisement “There has to be a duty of care because the by-product of speaking out will be the positive impact and the positive behaviour in stadiums, which will then have a domino effect on societal behaviour,” said Elliott. “With the utmost respect, this is one area where there has to be a united front – we must be together.” The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, in a statement carried by the BBC, said it was committed to working with football authorities in tackling racism. “Racism or any form of discrimination has no place in football or society, and we must confront this vile behaviour,” the statement said.

first_imgRAFAELA Silva’s gold medal has seemingly caught the interest of the Brazilian public with Rio 2016 ticket sales on the rise.Ticket sales for the Rio Olympics have been boosted by Rafaela Silva winning Brazil’s first gold medal on Monday and organisers are hopeful that more will be snapped up as the Games progress.Concerns have been raised in the opening week of the Games over swathes of empty seats at Olympic venues.Mario Andrada, executive communications director for Rio 2016, says around 10 000 tickets per day were being sold two weeks before the Games, but that 100 000 were sold on Monday – the same day Silva earned Brazil’s first gold by beating Sumiya Dorjsuren of Mongolia in the final of the women’s judo Under-57kg category.Following her win, Silva burst into tears in front of a raucous home crowd and her achievement has seemingly caught the interest of the wider public.“We sold 100 000 new tickets yesterday (Monday). We had 298 629 in all the Olympic arenas yesterday. We sold 82 per cent of the tickets available for yesterday,” Andrada told reporters.“We expect 344 000 people in all the Olympic venues today (Tuesday).“Two weeks before the Games, we were selling in an area of 10 000 tickets a day. We’re now selling more than 100 000 tickets every single day.“There is nothing better for ticket sales than when the country wins its first gold.“Brazilians, as have been widely said, are late buyers, but it’s impossible to resist when you have the Games at home.”last_img read more

first_imgThe close friend has kept a respectful distance from D’Angelo Russell recently, mindful that the Lakers’ rookie point guard has enough to worry about regarding his soiled reputation and fractured relationship with Nick Young.• RELATED: Lakers, Kobe Bryant ratchet up intensity in 107-100 loss to CelticsIn case Russell wants to hear it, though, Celtics center Jared Sullinger offered both sympathy and perspective on his friend’s secretly recorded and inadvertently published video that showed Young admitting to infidelities. • PHOTOS: Kobe Bryant turns it on, but Celtics still defeat Lakers 107-100 “Everybody is in his ear right now on what he needs to do and what he can’t do,” Sullinger said. “He doesn’t need to hear everything from every direction. If he needs me, I’m there. If he doesn’t, he doesn’t. When I see him, it’s all love.”Losing a legendThe video tribute blared through the Staples Center loudspeakers. The cheers bounced off the Staples Center walls. For once, the standing ovation had nothing to do with Kobe Bryant. It had everything to do with Lakers trainer Gary Vitti, who was honored after the first quarter to commemorate his 32nd and final season as the franchise’s head athletic trainer. “He’s never put a uniform on, but he’s been just as important with all the championships that have been won here since he’s been here,” Lakers coach Byron Scott said. “He knows how many people here love him, care about him and are going to miss him.”The Lakers played a video tribute for Vitti. They presented him with a framed Lakers jersey that sported a medical cross instead of a number. Vitti also will have two first-class tickets to Italy, where he vacations at his home every summer in Settefrati.“Everybody knows about the great players the Lakers have had,” Bryant said. “But none of us would be able to get out and perform without him. It’s just not possible. He’s the guy behind all of it. What he’s meant to my career, you can’t really put into words.”Scott jokingly dismissed Vitti’s role in the Lakers securing eight NBA titles in 12 Finals appearances since he was hired in 1984. Scott then turned serious, mindful that Vitti’s arrival coincided with the Lakers beating the Celtics in the 1985 NBA Finals. That marked the first time the Lakers defeated their arch rival in Finals history. “He kept us healthy and brought new things to the table not a lot of people agreed with,” Scott said. “We did them and it was pretty effective and we were able to win some championships with him being here. He’s just as important as all the players played here.” Scott said some unnamed Lakers officials initially thought Vitti’s suggestion for more weight training would “ruin a lot of the players because he was going to get them too bulked up.” Yet, Scott argued Vitti’s techniques “prolonged my career” that lasted 14 NBA seasons.Notable absencesThe two players represented a source of frustration for Lakers fans hoping Scott would favor his younger players. But Lou Williams and Brandon Bass became healthy scratches against Boston so Scott could do just that. Scott has forewarned both players to expect the same in the Lakers’ six remaining games.Scott has a different though process on playing 32-year-old point guard Marcelo Huertas, who is technically in his NBA rookie season.Said Scott: “I need somebody out there with a sense of understanding on the offense and be able to run the offense.” “This w pass over,” Sullinger said before the Lakers’ 107-100 loss to the Boston Celtics on Sunday at Staples Center. “I know it’s tough right now. But he’s a kid that doesn’t lack confidence. Something like this won’t derail him. I don’t think he’s going to get past it too quickly. But he’ll do his best to do it.” • PHOTOS: Lakers trainer Gary Vitti throughout the yearsSullinger met Russell through AAU and played at Ohio State before his lone season last year with the Buckeyes. Since then, Sullinger noticed Russell tackling adversities, including rising from an unknown high school prospect to coveted draft pick and adapting to an evolving role in his rookie season with the Lakers. “His confidence is growing as time goes on. He gets better and better as time goes on,” said Sullinger, who is playing his fourth season with the Celtics.Despite their close friendship, Sullinger has resisted offering much advice to Russell on his adversities both in his professional and private life. center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
