  • Workshops can provide practical skills and knowledge to build your coping tools, insights about yourself, and perspectives.
  • CAPS' three-part Anxiety Toolbox workshop series gives participants the chance to practice what they learn in between each of three workshops. Each workshop builds on the last to enhance participants' learning experience.
