Conversation Space is a safe, open-ended drop-in opportunity for support and authentic conversations between Notre Dame students and facilitated by Peter Barnes, Ph.D. Here, students are encouraged to talk about common issues, make connections, and provide mutual support. There is no set agenda for each meeting, which means the group can flexibly adapt to what students want to talk about, including issues related to stress, loneliness, diversity and inclusion, perfectionism, imposter syndrome, and various social challenges. Dr. Barnes may also occasionally provide some prompts to stimulate discussion, or provide useful information or opportunities to help with coping skills. Conversation Space is held every Monday from 4 to 5 p.m. on Zoom. Please note: this is NOT a therapy group nor a substitute for professional counseling. Please sign up HERE.
