In group counseling, approximately 5 – 8 individuals meet with a trained group counselor. During the group meeting time, members work on personal issues and challenges by talking about what is troubling them. Members of the group are helped and encouraged to give support, feedback, and to connect with other members.
Different groups are offered at counseling services at different times. Counseling offers support/feedback groups, skill based groups, and some topic specific groups such as “women’s group”.
Groups currently running as of Winter 2015:
- Tuesday and Wednesday Interpersonal Process Group: 2:00-3:20pm
- Anxiety and Stress Reduction Group
Are you feeling stressed or anxious? Do you find yourself worrying about things too much? Is stress keeping you up at night? If so, this group can help you to understand your stress and anxiety better and help you to see how your mental state is affecting your body. You’ll learn techniques to help you relax and manage your anxiety more effectively. If you are interested in joining the group, please schedule an appointment with counseling services to meet with an individual counselor to share your interest and learn more about the group.
