Group counseling provides a safe and effective environment where you can learn about yourself and how you function in relationships. Groups allow you to both give and receive feedback from others who are experiencing similar issues. Groups are led by a clinical staff member and typically have 5-8 members.
To join a group, a few steps are needed. Initially each potential group member must have an Initial Consultation with a CPS counselor. After that meeting the potential member must briefly meet with the group leader to determine if the group is a best fit for the student's needs.
