Group Counseling


Counseling & Psychological Services offers several group counseling options to meet various needs. Our office provides open groups where new members can join each week as well as closed groups where no new members can join after the group has been established. Group counseling has a variety of benefits in that one may experience a sense of belonging, establish a community, experience encouragement in learning that others may be dealing with  similar struggles, and celebrate the successes of growing together.

Closed Groups

Contemplative Prayer for Christians with Anxiety

This group will be offered as a closed, small group experience for five weeks during the semester. Relying on scriptural support, the contemplative Christian tradition, and psychological sciences, students will learn how to sit in silence with God, trusting in Him during moments of uncertainty, worry, and anxiety. All participants will be provided with the reading material and excused from convocation each Friday the group is held.
