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 work is an effective approach to many common concerns for college students, including: navigating difficult relationships, coping with anxiety, and feelings of isolation.
* Skill-based workshops, which provide learning, practice and self-reflection in a 3-series format, have moved to the Mental Health Promotion section; look for Mindful Coping and Wise Mind information there.
Process groups not currently offered for the Summer 2023. 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.
