Self Help Booklets

Self Help Booklets

CPS has a number of Self Help Booklets for students who:

  • Need Information for a class presentation or other public arena.
  • Need some ways of identifying problems in themselves or friends, and some helpful tips to "jumpstart" a needed change.
  • Are reluctant to consider face-to-face counseling right away, but want a more private way to begin to understand their problem (or the problems of a friend) and to give them courage to consider talking with someone.
  • Need an easier way to bring up a problem with a friend or family member and use one of our booklets as a "conversation starter."
  • Are psychological minded and curious about the following topics:

    Breaking Up

     Controlling Your Temper

     Depression

     Exam Panic

     Friendships Gone Bad

     Irresistible Urges

     Jealousy

     Loneliness

Long Distance Relationships

Perfectionism

Procrastination

Relationships that Hurt

Self-Confidence

Stop Being So Negative

Suicide: Helping Someone At Risk

Worrying: How to do less of it

 

These Self-Help Booklets are available to all OU students free of cost. You can pick them up at the CPS front desk without having to talk to anyone!
