Counseling and therapy groups provide a safe environment for you to learn more about yourself and your interactions with others. Each semester CAPS offers a variety of groups including general counseling groups, women's issues, grief issues, interpersonal issues, and many others. A brief screening with the group leader(s) may be required prior to becoming a member. If you are interested in a group, come in or call to schedule a screening appointment.
Most groups are held at Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) in Brotman Hall, Room 226 (BH-226).
