Counseling Services: Calendar of Groups & Workshops

Groups and Workshops

Many students benefit from counseling in a group format where common concerns can be explored. Groups offer the opportunity to learn new skills and to share your concerns in a safe environment, by meeting with other students. Some groups are focused on a common concern, such as social anxiety, relationships transitions or mood problems. One-time workshops focus on learning new skills to enhance personal well-being and academic success.



Counseling and Psychiatry groups and workshops:

There is no charge for CPS groups and workshops. If, however, you sign-up for a group and do not attend and have not called to cancel 24 hours in advance there will be a $25 no show fee.
