Group Counseling
  •  Participating in a structured group may be a good option for you if you feel alone in your struggles, are seeking outside perspective, are craving connection, and/or are struggling in your relationships. Group can be an effective way to:
    (a) gain support and encouragement from others
    (b) learn how you are perceived by others
    (c) gain specific skills to improve your life
    (d) engage in thoughtful and rewarding conversation
    (e) develop relational skills

    Ground rules, including confidentiality, are typically established with group members to help promote trust. For most benefit, consistent attendance is strongly encouraged.

    Numerous groups are offered through the CHW 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. A screening with a counseling staff member is typically required for participation. Most groups are 90 minutes long and they consist of 5 to 8 members.
