Self-Help Brochures


CPS has a number of Self Help Brochures 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


    Exam Panic

    Friendships Gone Bad

    Irresistible Urges



Long Distance Relationships



Relationships that Hurt


Stop Being So Negative

Suicide: Helping Someone At Risk

Worrying: How to do less of it

These Self-Help Brochures are available to all OU students free of cost.
