Group Counseling & Workshops

The Student Counseling Center offers group counseling and workshop series. These group settings provide a safe environment for self-exploration and collaborative problem-solving, combining professional guidance and the support of peers. Group counseling and workshops are an effective approach to many common concerns for college students, including: navigating difficult relationships, coping with anxiety, and feelings of isolation. 

Skill-Based Workshops

Skill-based workshops are usually in a structure-based format because there is a specific theme or topic of discussion, and each group session is focused on a topic relevant to the overall theme. There is often a lesson or learning component, skills practice, and self-reflection. Our skill-based workshops are offered as a 3-session series several times each semester. See current skill-based workshops below. 

Skill-based workshops are also available as pre-recorded video series, including Mindful Coping Practice Series and Wise Mind Practice Series.


Process Groups

Process groups not currently offered for the Fall 2022 semester. Stay tuned for future offerings!

A process group is unstructured and there is not a specific topic or plan for each group session. Members are encouraged to provide one another support and feedback, and to gain awareness of their own reactions to one another to develop greater relationship satisfaction. Counseling groups begin within the first four weeks of the semester and continue for the semester with 4-8 student participants. Process groups require an in-person pre-group consultation with the group facilitator(s); contact information below.
