Group therapy is an effective form of counseling that addresses a variety of student concerns.
In a group counseling setting, individuals begin to feel better about themselves, feel less alone, feel support from others, and are able to help others with similar experiences. Each semester, several different groups are offered through the Counseling Center, and group counseling is available to students in addition to their individual counseling. Many students elect to be in group and individual counseling concurrently, although some find that they prefer group counseling only.
Group counseling is offered to full- and part-time students, and there is no limit on group counseling sessions. If you have any questions about whether group counseling would be beneficial for you, please schedule an appointment with a group counselor to discuss your questions and concerns.
