Student Counseling Groups

Spring Quarter 2017 Groups

Group therapy is a form of counseling that has been proven to be highly effective in many clinical trials. Groups at SCS create a welcoming, non-judgmental environment where students can feel comfortable being open and honest about their struggles or current life situations.

What can group therapy offer you?

Group Therapy:

  • Allows you to find more clarity about your current challenges with the help of a support system and a knowledgeable counselor.
  • Provides the opportunity for students to share and listen to the experiences of other group members.
  • Allows members to bounce ideas of each other about helpful ways to address life situations.
  • Creates a safe space where members can give and receive feedback, support, and validation from others who have had similar experiences.
  • Allows students to have their own journey in the group, a journey that is enriched by the support and experience of others.

Joining a Group

Each quarter, SCS offers several group options designed to help you navigate a variety of situations that may arise during your time at UChicago.

Groups are offered for both undergraduate and/or graduate students. All groups at SCS require you to complete a pre-group interview with a group facilitator to ensure that the group is a good fit. If you are not selected for a particular group, SCS will make every effort to find an appropriate group opportunity or additional resources for you.

Please see below for this quarter’s group offerings.
