Group therapy provides a safe and trusting environment where you can gain support, share experiences and struggles, get feedback from others, and try out new skills. Research consistently shows that group therapy is an effective treatment choice for many people.

CAPS offers diverse groups that fit a range of needs.

Groups last four to 12 weeks, depending on the topic and format. This allows you to build trust with the other in the group and become more comfortable. You will know how long the group will last before it starts.

Groups are typically up to ten students with two group leaders. Group leaders are Counseling and Psychiatry counselors who guide self-exploration, give feedback, and encourage group cohesion.
