So how does that make you feel?…The Evolution of Counseling.

ASU Counseling Center and the Lost and Found Comedy Troupe have teamed up to provide a comedic look at psychology throughout the centuries, and also tap into stereotypes of mental health. We are having a night of laughter and pizza next week on Thursday, 1/29/15. The show starts at 6pm but there will be free pizza starting at 5:30pm. The show will be in the theater building and the show name is “So how does that make you feel?…The Evolution of Counseling.”

Several historical theorists and psychologists will be depicted in humorous tones, and more factual information will be provided by the Counseling Interns. After the comedy show, there will be a Q & A during which the counselors will get to know the audience, and directly address the stigma and stereotypes surrounding counseling and therapy,

Our aim for this show is to 1) Reduce stigma around mental health and counseling, 2) Familiarize the student body and the Alamosa Community with the faces of the ASU Counseling Center, and 3) Have a great and rowdy time!
