GROUP COUNSELING: SUPPORTIVE AND EFFECTIVE

Change Inside = Change Outside

For college students, making changes in counseling groups with peers that have similar concerns is one of the best choices. In group, you learn that you are not alone in your concerns. Group therapy is a unique opportunity to learn from others' diverse experiences, share similar personal concerns, develop self-awareness, take risks, learn and practice new skills in a safe, supportive environment. It is not always easy to change, or to even know what to change. As you have successful experiences practicing change in group therapy, however, you will begin to see change in your life outside of group as well.

The most successful groups stick together to transform. They also have the following characteristics:

Group members respect one another by refraining from disclosing any information that may be discussed within the group setting outside the group.

Group members commit to attending all group sessions. Groups range from one to twelve sessions.

To be part of a group, just call 480-965-6146 and request to speak with a group counselor who will be happy to give you more questions and answer any questions that you have.

For many concerns students have, group therapy is often the best way to see results in treatment. Group is a great choice for you if you want to:

  • learn how to make and/or keep friends
  • explore using your own voice and/or practice being assertive
  • learn how to manage or overcome shyness
  • address family issues, self-esteem, body image, loneliness, anxiety, depression or other issues that get in the way of your ability to grow and learn at ASU
