Counseling and Psychological Services Groups and Events

Weekly Support and Process Groups

We welcome you to join us for a weekly support and process group session.

 

Undergraduate Interpersonal Growth Group (yearlong in-person at Rose Hill)

Wednesdays at 3pm starting October 5th.

Do you get anxious in social situations? Feel isolated or depressed?  Struggle with transitions? Wish you were different? You're not alone! 

The power of an Interpersonal Growth Group lies in the interactions among members, the feedback and observations they give and receive, and what they learn about themselves in the process. Group members get help and help others at the same time. They gain insight into how others experience them, and they can experiment with being different. Students often report feeling less isolated, more self-aware, more connected to others, and more comfortable being uncomfortable as a result of their Group experience.

Transcending Labels: Deconstructing "Attachment" (a 6-week Workshop series on Zoom)

Fridays at 2:30-3:30pm 
Starting the first week in October

What do you know about “Attachment Theory”?

Do you define yourself or others by their “Attachment Style”?
How does your understanding of "Attachment" labels impact your relationships, with others and with yourself?

In this structured workshop, we will explore Attachment Theory from different angles every week, integrating psychoeducation and self-reflection. The aim is to transcend Attachment labels so that you begin to see new, more expansive possibilities for yourself and your relationships.

Open to students from Lincoln Center and Rose Hill.
