Group Counseling


Counseling Services Groups

These groups are located on campus and are led by Counseling Services staff.


ACT Together

ACT Together is an open group (you can attend as many or as few sessions as you want) for peers to offer each other support and discuss shared experiences with depression and other mood disorders. The group counselor will lead discussion and offer skills training in resilience, managing depression, and increasing well-being using the lens of Acceptance & Commitment Therapy. The group will meet via Zoom and will utilize online self-help resources from TAO.

Attending students are required to register in advance via Qualtrics in order to obtain the Zoom link. Students will also be required to agree to group rules and informed consent when registering.

The group will meet on the first and third Tuesdays of the month beginning 09/01/2020 during Common Time (11am – 12:15am), with ten sessions per semester.
