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.
