Group Counseling is highly effective for many student concerns. In group counseling, therapists facilitate discussion and interactions among individuals who are often struggling with similar concerns. Through this process, individuals can hear other's perspectives, feel connection through shared experience, and practice new ways of interacting and coping. Counseling Services offers different group counseling opportunities each semester. A pre-group interview is required with the group facilitator prior to joining a group. This helps to determine whether a group is likely to meet an individual student's needs and whether that student will fit well with a particular group's current composition. The groups being offered this semester are listed below.
