What is group therapy?
A counseling group is usually comprised of 6-8 people who meet face to face with one or two trained facilitators and talk about what is concerning them most. Members listen to each other and openly provide each other feedback. These interactions give members an opportunity to increase understanding, try out new ways of being with others and learn more about the ways they interact. The content of group sessions are confidential; members agree not to identify other members or their concerns outside of group.
It is common for people to experience some discomfort over the prospect of talking in a group. This initial anxiety is quite normal since most people have not been exposed to a group therapy environment and do not know what to expect.
Different types of group therapy may be offered each semester depending upon student interests and needs.
