Fall 2013 Groups!
Many people feel they are alone and no one could understand their problems. It can be encouraging and helpful to hear that other people have similar difficulties. In the Women’s Group, female students will meet with a trained group therapist to talk about what is troubling them. Common presenting problems vary, but may include: relationship issues, family issues, academic/career concerns, societal pressures on women, work-life balance, body image, discrimination, depression, anxiety and self-confidence/self-esteem. This group aims to allow members the opportunity to talk with other women about issues of concern in a supportive and confidential environment. Please note, this is not a drop-in group. Each potential member will meet with the facilitator to ensure that the group can meet their needs.
