Group counseling can be a very effective way to address a wide range of issues. What better way to address what’s on your mind than to get input from people who can relate to you! Groups can help people feel connected, get lots of feedback and ideas, and find hope that things can be better. Groups typically include 5-8 participants and 2 co-therapists and meet for 90 minutes each week for the duration of a semester. Groups are confidential, and participants sign contracts stating they will uphold confidentiality. Check out the Groups Offered page for more information about the groups currently offered this semester. Call the Counseling Center at 852-6585 to find out more, to enroll in a particular group, or to set up an initial individual meeting prior to starting the group. We hope you’ll join us!
***Many people have their own beliefs about group counseling, perhaps from word of mouth, television shows, or just our own expectations. This document includes a variety of myths that you may have about groups that we suggest you reconsider. Reading through this may help you feel at ease before attending your first group.
