Description

Speaking Circle Workshops offer you a remarkable opportunity to improve your speaking skills--to become more confident, more eloquent, more clear-headed in all the speaking situations that you are likely to encounter in graduate school - speaking up in classes and seminars, giving talks, presenting your ideas to a professor.
 
The Speaking Circle approach is simple, though it has powerful psychological underpinnings. Within this comfortable frame, participants gain surprising confidence in their ability to think on their feet. Participants report that Speaking Circles helped them to trust in their own voice, strengthen their self-confidence and dramatically reduce their anxiety. We hope you will join us for this surprisingly fun and effective workshop.

Dr. Lois Feldman is a psychologist and a certified Speaking Circle facilitator who runs workshops on public speaking in corporations and other settings. She has extensive experience helping students with issues pertaining to their graduate work.

Dr. Fred Stern is a psychologist in private practice. He runs public speaking seminars, and has worked extensively with graduate students, giving a variety of workshops at CUNY over the past fifteen years.
