Group Counseling

Group Counseling & Workshop Experiences

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.

Let's Talk About It!

Grief: Coping with Bereavement and Loss

Grief is a natural reaction to loss or change. Grief is most commonly discussed in relation to the death of a loved one, however grief can be experienced following any major change in life. Our groups will offer members support and understanding as they cope with their losses. A focus on providing coping strategies and ways to practice self-care, will be explored as well. When others share their experiences, you can gain insight into what might help you on your own journey. Being able to experience acceptance of the pain of loss, come to a renewed sense of hope, and securing meaning and purpose, is what we hope to achieve during our time together. Grief is unique, and with support, you will get through this process in your own way.

Safe Zone

Have you seen the rainbow certificates posted outside the offices of faculty, staff, and student employees across campus? This indicates that the College employee within that office is Safe Zone trained!

The mission of Safe Zone is to build a community of Allies who support and advocate for the rights of the College’s LGTBQ+ community members.

This program is scheduled to be presented virtually once a month to any interested faculty member, staff or student or upon request to any department of student organization.
