Group Counseling

Group counseling is an especially useful approach for addressing many issues commonly experienced by college students. It is often the treatment of choice for people who identify difficulties in interpersonal relationships, social anxiety, stress, and low self esteem.

If you would like more information about joining a Counseling Service's group, please come to Walk-in Hours to speak with a counselor. If you already have a SHAC counselor, please speak with your current counselor about your options for group. A pregroup interview with group leaders is required for all groups.

Adverse Childhood Experience Recovery Group

Growing up in a household where you experience Adverse Childhood Experiences such as abuse, neglect or other serious problems leads to normal, predictable responses to the abnormal experience. In this group you will have a safe space where you can learn about and better understand how your experience has impacted you...and you will get support to begin making changes that will lead to improved relationships, emotional health and physical well-being.

Want to learn techniques for managing emotions and stress more effectively? This is a psychoeducational group, structured similarly to a discussion class. New group members are welcome at designated times throughout the term.
