Be REAL: Resilient Attitudes and Living


Looking to de-stress, improve your focus & meet new people?

Join this free program in the UW Residential Halls!

The UW Center for Child and Family Well-Being (CCFW) has developed a program to support undergraduate students living in the residential halls. The program, Be REAL – Resilient Attitudes and Living, aims to promote well-being among college students. The program provides students with opportunities to learn stress management skills, improve attention and focus, and discuss how these skills apply to daily life in a group setting.

We are currently recruiting participants for Fall 2017 and Winter 2018.
