You Are Not Alone: Group Counseling

Published May 22, 2023

Different types of groups are offered each semester. Some groups are designed for a specific population or issue, while others consist of skill building and experiential learning.

A typical group includes 6-12 students and 1-2 therapists, and meets once per week. At group counseling, you will usually recreate the issues that brought you to counseling in the first place. Under the skilled direction of the group therapists, the group is able to give support, offer alternatives, or — when appropriate — gently confront you. Group counseling provides a unique opportunity for you to try out new ways of behaving and discover new skills. 

Groups begin meeting mid-June, after which they will be closed to new students.
