Each year, Counseling Services presents the Emotional Well-Being Workshop Series to bring in mental health professionals from both on- and off-campus to discuss a wide variety of topics related to having a healthy emotional life. Each workshop will be on a Wednesday from 12:00 - 12:55 in Avery Library, and free lunch will be provided on a first-come basis.

On May 1st, Wendy Lopata, LCSW will lead a workshop on getting healthy sleep. Sleep is a necessary part of our lives - and it's also one of the first things that we sacrifice when we're busy. Come join Wendy Lopata, who previously worked as Caltech's health educator, for this practical and informative workshop on understanding your body's natural sleep cycles and circadian rhythms, the effects of sleep deprivation, and how to set the stage for a restful, refreshing night's sleep.

Wendy Lopata previously worked as Caltech's health educator, where she worked with students about concerns such as eating disorders, substance abuse, sleep, and sexual health. Currently in her private practice, she continues to work with many Caltech students on these and other issues such as trauma, assault, and relationship concerns. She's taught at USC's School of Social Work as an adjunct professor, and has led workshops and trainings at the University of Southern California and here at Caltech.
