Group counseling is often the most beneficial option for many student concerns. Group counseling is a form of psychotherapy that involves four to ten clients and two experienced group therapists. Therapy groups meet every week at the same time for ninety minutes. During that time, the members of the group discuss the issues that are concerning them and offer each other support and feedback. Interpersonal interaction is highly valued and encouraged. Group counseling may be particularly useful for students who are having difficulties in their relationships or who want to learn about themselves and their connections to other people. Group counseling is the only long-term treatment option offered at the Counseling Center. Any cost is covered by your student health fee.
The Counseling Center offers several different groups based on various interests and perspectives.
Students must meet with an individual counselor before joining a group. Existing clients should contact their counselor about their interest in group counseling. New clients should contact the Counseling Center to schedule an initial appointment.
