Group therapy is often the treatment of choice for many of the issues studnets face. Groups provide students with an opportunity to meet in a safe, supportive setting with other students who share similar concerns and issues.
All group counseling is by referral of a counselor within our office; therefore, a student must first schedule an individual appointment with a counselor before they may attend any of the group sessions offered at the Counseling Center. Together, you and your assigned counselor will determine which group will best meet your needs. To schedule an individual appointment with a counselor, call (208) 496-9370.
