Summer activities

Outdoor workout sessions

Since physical training has shown to be good for both physical and mental health, the Student Health Centre will offer easy outdoor workout sessions this summer. It will also be an opportunity to meet others and get started with that training routine that you may have postponed for a while.

The sessions will be easy so that everyone can join regardless of training background. It will vary, among other things, between strength training, running/jogging and beach volleyball. The sessions will be 3060 minutes long depending on what activity we do.

Every Tuesday and Thursday at 09:00 we gather at the outdoor gym in Stadsparken in Lund. Of course, it's free of charge. Come in workout clothes and do not forget to bring a bottle of water!

Dates

  • 31 May10 July (Week 2227)*
  • 15 August4 September (Week 3335)

*Note: There will be no workout session on Thursday 16 June.

Before some of the outdoor workout sessions on Thursdays, the Student Health Centre arranges open meditation classes from 08:15–08:45.

The classes start with an introduction and easy pre-asanas (simple preparatory yoga sequences/positions). After that, the formal seated practice lasts for approximately 18 minutes.

Groups

Procrastination group

Do you have problems with procrastination?

The Procrastination Group is intended for international students who have difficulty organising, or repeatedly postpone, work related to their studies. The purpose of the group is to work together to reduce procrastination and receive support in behavioural change. The group has about 16 participants and operates throughout the academic year. Participation is free of charge. 

The group meetings take place on Thursdays at 14:30–16:00 (via Zoom). However, new members start 30 minutes earlier during their first four meetings, at 14:00. 

During this time, we go through the basics of procrastination psychology and the various tools for breaking a pattern of procrastination.

The group meetings for all members (including newcomers) start directly after the 30-minute introduction.

You can sign up to participate in the Procrastination Group at any time by completing our application form below. We will then contact you and let you know when the next introduction will start.

Metacognitive Group Therapy (MCGT)

Our Metacognitive Group Therapy is based on Adrian Wells’ Metacognitive Therapy for Anxiety and Depression (2009), which has led to demonstrably effective treatments for a number of different psychiatric problems.

This group treatment for worry and rumination is aimed at remedying repetitive negative thinking, which is theoretically understood as a transdiagnostic process underlying emotional disorders. Published research on treatments based on MCT show great promise and effect sizes are generally large, with participants showing significantly less engagement in worry and rumination as well as reduced anxiety and depression symptoms by the end of treatment (McEvoy, 2019; McEvoy et al., 2015; Thorslund et al., 2020).

Our treatment spans over six weeks, with weekly two-hour sessions as well as a follow-up (booster) after two months. The treatment is given in English, and both international and Swedish students are thus eligible to participate. Note that active participation during and in between sessions is a prerequisite. Moreover, you need an evaluation and referral from a clinician or counsellor at the Student Health Centre to be able to register.

The treatment's group format does not involve explicit self-disclosure. The approach is structured and resembles that of a regular course. The emphasis will be on learning strategies for dealing with worry and rumination, rather than examining individual history or personal issues. By participating, you get the opportunity to gain a better understanding of your problems and adopt new strategies for dealing with them.

Courses

Stress management course 

The Student Health Centre offers a stress management course every semester where a small group of students meets three times to learn more about what stress is and how to handle it. You will also get a chance to learn more about yourself, what’s important to you and how to make the changes you need in order to succeed in your studies. 

The course is based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) techniques, as well as mindfulness.

If you sign up, you are expected to attend all three sessions. At the moment, the course is held on Zoom.
