The Counseling Office has offered a variety of groups over the years focused on relationship enrichment, mindfulness training, mood and emotion management, a sampling of dialectical behavior therapy skills, men’s or women’s issues, compulsive sexual behavior, support for students of color, wellness habits, bi-vocational discernment, parenting, spirituality and creativity, anxiety, depression, procrastination, ADHD, and many other issues/concerns/affinities. If you are interested in forming a group, contact director of Student Counseling, Wanda Sevey, would be happy to help you.
Spiritual direction and discernment groups (including Art of Discernment groups) meet every other week for six to eight sessions, and are facilitated by trained spiritual directors. More information is available on the Spiritual Direction page.
Off-campus groups are offered by Trinity Counseling Service and Specialty Providers such as DBT Skills, Anxiety Reduction, and Imago Couples Therapy.
Groups led by on-campus counselors are free. Students and spouses pay $10 per session for groups facilitated by spiritual directors, Trinity Counseling Service staff, or SHBP therapists. For groups held off-campus, copayments are usually paid directly to the facilitator or to Trinity in advance. For on-campus groups, the copayments may be billed to student accounts. The comprehensive fee or SHBP cover the balance of the cost of the group.
Check the calendar on the Student Counseling website or come to Templeton 301 for descriptions of offerings in a given semester. Contact the Director of Student Counseling if financial aid is needed to participate.
