Understanding Self and Others Group (USO)

 Group members explore and discuss patterns of relating to self and others by discovering acceptance and understanding of themselves and others. Topics of discussion vary greatly from depression, anxiety, relationships, family concerns, eating issues, alcohol abuse and/or personal growth. The groups thrive on diversity as members discover the common bond through emotional experiences.

Safe Haven: A Therapy Group for the GLBTQ Community

This group is a small and unstructured group in a safe and supportive environment to help you develop individualized coping strategies to increase your social performance and satisfaction. Topics of discussion may include struggles with identity, acceptance, or general relationship concerns.

Running Group

This group combines the elements of a USO Group with exercise.  The group focus is on the treatment of anxiety, what areas in your life that may contribute, from relationships, academics or just general anxiety.  The group also runs as a form of exercise and treatment for the anxiety.

Taking Back Hope

This group is a semi-structured group that provides some education and ability to discuss and process experiences for those who may have any mood disorder.  This group provides many opportunities to learn about how to work through mood disorders and prepare students for the USO groups.  The group remains open throughout the semester.

Mindful Eating

Coping Skills
