Groups & Workshops

Group counseling is a form of psychological treatment which involves 4 to 8 students meeting with 1 or 2 trained counselor(s), typically once a week for 1.5 hours.  Group members talk about a variety of issues including exploring relationships and enhancing coping skills.  Group members share information about themselves, gain insight into their own thoughts and behaviors, and provide feedback and support to others. Group leaders facilitate productive communication in the group. Group counseling has unique benefits and, for some issues, is the recommended treatment.
