What is Group Counseling

Group counseling is a form of treatment that allows participants to learn about themselves and their relationships with others and to address personal difficulties that are often shared by other members of the group. A significant benefit of group therapy includes not feeling as alone since others in thegroup will likely have experienced similar concerns.

Most students, though somewhat apprehensive at first, report that the group experience was helpful far beyond their expectations.

Research shows that group counseling is one of the most effective and efficient tools for addressing concerns common among college students. Not only do students receive tremendous understanding, support and encouragement from others facing similar issues, but they also gain different perspectives, ideas and viewpoints on those issues.
