Groups/Programs

GROUPS Group counseling provides an opportunity for students with common concerns to meet in a safe, and confidential setting to address issues that are affecting them. Groups are facilitated by skilled professionals and promote emotional and psychological health. The Center offers groups that fall into various categories: Therapy Groups assist members with changing behaviors, improving relationships, gaining insight and improving overall healthy functioning. Support Groups serve to unify members around certain common themes by providing information and guidance and general emotional support through the relationships and trust developed over time. Psycho-Educational Groups offer participants information and skills needed to manage behaviors that impact emotional and psychological well being.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT IN GROUP COUNSELING? In both Therapy and Support Groups, members share thoughts and personal feelings about their own lives and issues that arise in the group. Since participants need to be committed to the group process and sincere about learning and growing as persons, potential members meet with the group facilitator to determine eligibility for participation. Psycho-Educational Groups offer a wide-range of student participation since they are more structured and focus on skill development. No pre-screening is required for these groups. As a participant in any of these groups you can expect to build confidence in yourself and become more aware of the impact you have on others. You will be able to identify and express your feelings more effectively. You will also know that you are not alone as you listen to the concerns of other group members. You will be able to give and receive support.
