What is Group Counseling?

Group counseling is one form of therapy offered by the Student Counseling Center. In group counseling, approximately 8-10 people meet with one or two clinicians from SCC. The clinician(s) facilitate the group.

Group members are encouraged to talk with each other, share their problems, and provide feedback and support to other members. Group counseling provides a safe, confidential place in which members can honestly share their thoughts, feelings, and reactions to other people as well as try out new ways to interact with people.
