Groups @ Counseling Services
Group therapy is an effective form of treatment for a wide variety of mental health and wellness concerns, and has been found to be more effective than individual therapy for certain concerns. Group therapy is offered to all enrolled DePauw students at no additional cost. These groups are facilitated by trained counseling staff who create a safe group space for group members to effectively address their concerns in a more genuine way and to gather support and skills from other members to make improvements on their symptoms and concerns. Contact DePauw University Counseling Services at (765) 658-4268 if you are interested in attending a group. Attendance is limited, and a pre-group screening appointment is required.
Groups offered in Fall Semester 2017
All groups are held at the Counseling Services Group Room, unless otherwise stated.
