Group Counseling
Counseling Center/LAS

Group counseling is a highly effective form of therapeutic treatment. The small and intimate nature of a group (typically no more than eight members) provides a safe and supportive space for students to explore a range of issues as they interact with others. Getting feedback from peers, learning that others are dealing with similar issues, and feeling that you can help someone else are only a few of the benefits of group counseling. Although many new group members express uncertainty about talking about their problems with others, cohesion and comfort among participants increases with each session. Some groups are referred to as “general therapy groups” and address a range of interpersonal issues. Other groups are more focused on specific challenges, such as anxiety, depression, stress, men’s issues, eating disorders, and procrastination.
