Group counseling offers an opportunity for students to meet others who may have similar experiences and want to pursue personal growth in a safe, supportive environment.
Many students have found that group counseling is effective for...
- Realizing they are not alone.
- Learning the benefits of giving and receiving help.
- Developing new ways of relating that are helpful in everyday life.
In addition, groups allow students to talk about issues that otherwise might be too difficult to talk about outside of group.
We typically offer ten or more counseling groups each semester, on a variety of topics. Most groups meet weekly for 1.5 hours, and groups are typically comprised of 6-8 student members and 1-2 counselors. Students meet individually with a counselor prior to joining a group in order to learn more about the group and to discuss individual goals for group involvement.
If you are interested in joining a group or would like to learn more about the groups being offered, please contact either of the CAPS offices.
