In group counseling, not only do students receive tremendous understanding, support, and encouragement from others facing similar issues, but they also gain different perspectives, ideas, and viewpoints on those issues. It is a form of helping in which a small number of people come together under the guidance of a professionally trained therapist to help themselves and one another address mental health and other personal concerns. Talk to a clinician and ask about our group counseling program to get connected and learn more.
Due to current high rates of COVID-19 infections, all groups offered during spring 2022 will be virtual until further notice.
Having difficulty adjusting to college life, making friends or missing home? This is a support group for students transitioning into college. Meet with others who are experiencing college for the first time and connecting with the campus community.
Even the most successful relationships have conflict. It’s not the presence of the conflict but rather how it’s managed that predicts success or failure. This educational group will allow you to learn about building and maintaining healthy intimate relationships. You’ll be able to share own experiences and receive feedback with the goal of identifying functional vs dysfunctional patterns.
Everyone has the capacity to recover from difficult situations and the ability to respond effectively to stress and adversity. This educational group will focus on important factors that help build and foster resiliency.

Please join us at the FSC Counseling Center for a weekly procrastination buster. Each week individuals will meet in the group setting so we can discuss what areas of your life you may want to modify, barriers to you making progress, and develop a personalized plan for success. Group topics include, but are not limited to: What is procrastination, how assessing your wants/needs/values can reduce procrastination, how to set obtainable goals, general coping skills (distress tolerance, mindfulness, self-care), wanting signs to look out for; what leads to burnout.
Required when attending the group: please bring your syllabus or have access to your class assignments each group. Please bring planner(s) of your choice as we will be actively working on them in group. If you use a virtual planner please have access to it in group.
