Group


Spring 2014 Groups!

Women’s Group

Many people feel alone and that no one could understand their problems. It can be encouraging and helpful to hear that other people have similar difficulties. The Women’s Group aims to allow members the opportunity to talk with other female students about issues of concern in a supportive and confidential environment. In the Women’s Group, female students will meet with a trained group therapist to talk about what is troubling them. Group discussions may include, but are not limited to: relationship issues, family issues, academic/career concerns, societal pressures on women, work-life balance, body image, unwanted sexual contact/sexual assault, harassment/discrimination, depression, anxiety, self-esteem and self-confidence. Please note that this is not a drop-in group. Each potential member will meet with the facilitator prior to their first group meeting to ensure that the group can meet their needs. Group meetings will begin in February, 2014 and will meet weekly, on Thursdays, from 4:15 to 5:30 p.m. through the end of the spring semester. For more information about the Women’s Group, please contact SCC Counselor, Lisa Strauch, Psy.D. at (410) 328-8404.
