Group sessions can be a very powerful therapeutic experience. They are facilitated by one of our counselors and present a way for students to learn from their peers and recognize that they are not alone. Group members will be able to hear other perspectives, provide/receive support, and apply new coping techniques, all in a confidential setting.
Students can join our groups at any time so long as there are seats available. They can be psychoeducational (focuses on educating clients about their areas of concern and developing best practices for the individual) or process (assist individuals in identifying more about who they are and the role they play in their life regarding the topic, along with developing best practices for themselves).
An intake or a group assessment session with a counselor is required before joining a group. You can schedule this by contacting Counseling Services at 309.341.7492 or email@example.com.
If you are interested in a particular group, mention it to the counselor during your session. If you are already seeing a counselor, feel free to voice any interest in a group during a regular session.
Please contact Counseling Services at 309-341-7492 if you have any questions about a group.
