On an as needed basis, Counseling Services offers support groups. A support group is several people of similar concerns that meet together regularly to set goals and monitor each other’s progress. The Counselor serves as group facilitator. Groups are focused on a particular topic and usually meet weekly for three to six weeks, depending on the needs of the group. These groups meet in the Counselor’s waiting room, a comfortable and private area with ample space to accommodate groups of up to eight students. Each group member is expected to maintain confidentiality and to attend on a regular basis.
Examples of Group offered are: Adjusting to College, Stress Management, Body Image and Eating.
Contact the Counselor if there is a particular group you are interested in and/or to find out more information. Groups being offered are well advertised via email and campus publications.
The Counselor may be able to refer you to Groups outside the college as well.
