Group counseling gathers approximately 5-10 students to meet weekly. These sessions are led by Counseling & Student Development Center staff.
This form of counseling can offer unique opportunities to learn about yourself. Group provides a place to share your concerns, try out new behaviors, and learn more about how you interact with others.
Group participants are encouraged to share their reactions to other group members, the leaders, and the material discussed in the group meeting. The group leaders help to create a safe environment and to encourage group members' interaction. Creating this safe atmosphere includes protecting members' privacy and facilitating open, honest, and respectful discussions.
Check out the Current Groups flyer or call the Counseling & Student Development Center at 570.577.1604 for the current group meeting schedule. All potential group members must schedule a preliminary meeting with the group leader(s), which provides an opportunity to get acquainted, ask questions, and discuss expectations.
