Summer 2021 

 

 Psychoeducation Groups

While Counseling Center clinicians facilitate Psychoeducation Groups, and participation may have therapeutic benefit for the members, it does not imply that participants are in therapy or are clients at the Counseling Center. This is not a clinical service. 

Color Conscious/Color Competent Group
Tuesdays, 3:10-4:30pm
Co-led by Frances Mallari, M.Phil. & Jesse Greenblatt, M.Psy.

This group is a (virtual) psychoeducational space to process the unique challenges of being a student of color at CUA, in a supportive environment. The group is also open to White students who want to learn how to better support their peers of color. Engage in open dialogues to increase your awareness of the impacts that your identities have on your relationship with yourself and others.

For Summer 2021, this group will be conducted via videoconference. Students will need to attend an Information Session prior to joining the group.


Mindfulness Meditation Drop-in Group
Wednesdays, 1:10-2:00pm
Led by Andrew Connors, M.A. 

Open to the CUA campus community! Please join us for a mindfulness meditation group sit. We will start each session with a brief guided practice followed by a silent sit for the remainder of the time. Hope to see you there!

For Summer 2021, this group will be conducted via videoconference. If you are interested in attending, please contact Andrew Connors at 92connors@cua.edu to obtain the access link.


Men’s Support Group
Thursdays, 3:10-4:30pm
Co-led by Andrew Connors, M.A. and Rekha Varghese, Psy.D.

The primary purpose of the Men’s Support Group is to provide a space for male-identified students to share emotional, psychological, and relational struggles and to provide support to other group members. A secondary goal is to explore men’s issues in our changing contemporary culture. Additionally, this group aims to explore the concept of male identity in general and how this interacts with individual emotional and psychological experiences, and how group members' roles as men function in relationships.
 
For Summer 2021, this group will be conducted via videoconference. Students will need to attend an Information Session prior to joining the group.
