Therapeutic Groups

Seeking Growth Together

This is an opportunity for six to eight students to meet in a group with a professional counselor as the group leader. Confidentiality and respect is maintained and therefore provides the group members an opportunity to address concerns, identify with others experiencing similar concerns, increase self-awareness and acceptance through group member interaction and feedback, and learn to respect individual differences. This is also the place to try out new behaviors and ideas, to express difficult feelings and to practice assertiveness.  

Groups currently available:

  • Masculinity and Integrity- A therapeutic growth group for men.

There are other types of groups that will be formed on an as-needed basis. These types include, but are not limited to, common growth groups, anxiety, grief and loss, positive body image, healing from assault.   

Screening Interview

If you are interested in a group, please fill out an intake form.

Once the intake form is received, the group counselor schedules a time to meet with potential group members. This individual meeting will address particulars of group work, like: expectations of the group leader; expectations of members' participation, group members' reservations of working in a group setting; potential problems members will face; and group norms. Following the individual screening interview, the group counselor will either assign the individual to a group or recommend another form of help, e.g., individual counseling.
