Choosing Group Counseling:

There are many benefits to group counseling, it is especially unique in the validation and connections formed when you feel seen and heard by your peers. (for more information check out this brief article by the American Psychological Association: Understanding Group Therapy) The Counseling Support Center offers several topic-specific groups throughout the academic year. Fall 2022 groups are as follows:

Rhythm is Life: Drumming for Your Health

When we drum together, we share our individuality and create community. We fight isolation and loneliness. Drumming also helps us heal our whole selves. It can boost our immune system, raise our mood, and release emotional trauma, anxiety and stress; deeply relaxing us while feeding our energy. And… it's fun! Join us for Drum Circles twice a month. No experience necessary & drums provided!  

When: Thursdays 1 – 2  (9/8, 9/22, 9/30, 10/13, 10/20, 11/3, 11/17, 12/1, 12/15)      Where: U140

Chaos to Calm: The Mind/Body Connection

Postponed till Spring 2023 

Understanding how our body responds to stress is key to understanding how we can better move through our worries, fears and anxieties. When we feel anxious or overwhelmed, we can draw on information from neuroscience, biology, and psychology to develop a new and empowered relationship with ourselves and our struggles. Relief is possible. Join us in discovering how you can move from chaos to calm. 

When: Tuesdays 12 – 1  Dates To Be Determined                  Where: U236

What do I Want? Relationships, Boundaries & Loneliness 

Making friends and discovering who you are as an independent individual can be challenging. This group is about developing the skills and confidence to do it. The best part? You don't have to do it alone! We will work together to face fears and obstacles, find things that work for us and have some fun along the way. 

When: Tuesdays 12 – 1  Dates To Be Determined                  Where: U236
