Here are some examples of groups we have run in the past:
Adult Children of Alcoholics
This group provided students with support and understanding of the unique pressures they experienced at home, which often continues to impact them while in college.
Eating and Body Image
For students exploring their relationship with food and body and those recovering from eating disorders. Themes include safety, depression, sexuality, self-esteem, relationship, etc.
Intercultural Student Support Group
Students of color on our predominately white campus have a safe and supportive space on campus to discuss issues of feeling marginalized on campus and/or in the greater community, to share support, and of course, a place to share their favorite cultural comfort foods.
Survivors of Sexual Trauma
A safe environment for creative recovery from sexual abuse or assault. Give and receive support through the healing process, understand how the trauma may affect current relationships, and design positive change.
Between the Lines
Social and emotional support of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and asexual plus students and those questioning their identity.
Life Hack/Coping Skills
This workshop series is based upon DBT coping skills. A drop-in group and a closed group are offered.
Stress Management Workshop Series
Help with determining your priorities and designing your time to match these values. Understand how you deal with anxiety, relax, and experiment with new coping strategies.
Mindfulness Meditation Workshop Series
A brief 4-week series of drop-in workshops to help students learn different styles of meditation.
Grief and Loss Support
Help to deal with the loss of someone or something important, such as a death, the loss of a relationship, a change in physical health or skills, plans/dreams, or a cultural adjustment.
Sobriety Support Group
Students want the support, structure, and skills needed to maintain quality abstinence from alcohol and other drugs for those who have made a change they want to keep.
Slow Dance with Mary Jane
A brief, semi-structured support group of students wanting to decrease their use of marijuana. This group was based upon the Stage of Change.
In addition to groups facilitated by our psychology staff, our campus has two 12 step support groups, Eating Disorders Anonymous and All Addictions Anonymous.
