Open Support Groups and Drop-In Workshops: open to anyone who is interested in joining, where you can stop in as needed.

Group counseling is a powerful arena for tremendous growth and change.  Not only will students receive understanding, support, and encouragement from others facing similar issues, but they also gain different perspectives, ideas, and viewpoints on those issues. It’s like having 8 counselors for the price of one!

Most student, though somewhat apprehensive at first, report that the group experience was helpful far beyond their expectations. We tend to keep our groups fairly small – around 6-8 group members, depending on the topic.

Numerous groups are offered every semester through the Counseling Services Center that address student concerns in a variety of areas.  Some of the groups are population and/or issue specific, while other groups consist of skill building and experiential learning. 

The needs of the students determine the types and numbers of groups available. These groups are free and open to all university enrolled students. A SCREENING MAY BE REQUIRED FOR PARTICIPATION. Most groups are 60-90 minutes long and they consist of 5 to 8 members.  Please see our groups and events calendar for a current list of all offerings.

 Also, check out our drop-in workshops, which are weekly, free, and open to all students; no screening necessary, low commitment.
