Therapy Groups

Therapy groups provide an opportunity to work through a variety of concerns within a person’s life while receiving support, gaining insight, learning and practicing new behaviors, and increasing self-esteem. In group therapy, you have the opportunity to:

  • Increase your self-awareness and focus energy into aspects of your life you wish to change
  • Try out new behaviors and experiment with new ideas
  • Express feelings you are hesitant to express and assert yourself in new ways
  • Learn from other group members (and group facilitators) by getting feedback and finding out how others perceive you

All therapy groups are "closed" groups; this means once group begins, students can no longer join the group until the following semester. Students are encouraged to start at the beginning and persist with each meeting date throughout the course of the group/workshop.

  • Understanding Self and Others (USO) Groups

  • Eating Disorders Recovery

  • Men's Body Image
