Group Counseling


Did you know that groups can help you:
  • Discover that others experience similar difficulties.
  • Become inspired by hearing how others have successfully worked through life's challenges.
  • Learn more about your own thoughts and feelings.
  • Receive feedback from others that could assist you in your ability to effectively resolve conflicts.
  • Experience fulfillment in response to helping and being helped by others.
  • Learn about how others may perceive you.
  • Learn to express your thoughts, feelings, and ideas in ways that increase closeness and understanding.

The DUCC can offer a variety of groups that are available to both undergraduate and graduate students.  The size of each group can vary, but most groups consist of 4 to 10 members and 1 or 2 therapists.  Group members agree to participate in a group for at least one semester and to maintain confidentiality within the group.  Some groups meet for a single semester while others are designed to be ongoing.

Some examples of the types of groups that the DUCC ffers can include:

  • Interpersonal Process Support
  • Dissertation Support
  • Resilience
  • Stess Management
  • Grief Support
  • Body Image
  • Graduate Student Support
  • MIndfulness/Medication

If you would like to benefit from participating in a group, call the DUCC at 412-396-6204 for more information.
