Group Counseling

Please check back in late August for the Fall 2018 Group Offerings

Because we live our lives in relationship to others, and because these relationships are integral to our health and well-being, group therapy is the recommended treatment of choice for many of the issues college students face.  The Wellness Center offers a variety of group treatment options. 

While it is normal to feel nervous about joining a group, many of our students report feeling very helped by the group therapy experience.  Group therapy represents a special kind of relationship to others that is different from our social relationships. This has many advantages, such as the freedom to ask for feedback at any time, to try out new behaviors, to talk about topics that may be difficult to raise, or to share sensitive concerns. The Fall 2018 group list will be published in late August; at that time, please contact the group facilitator or talk with your intake counselor about which group may be the best fit for you. 

Please see Wellness Center Groups for examples of typical groups offered during the semester.
