Group therapy is a powerful treatment that allows people to connect deeply with themselves and with others. As one of the most effective treatments for a variety of concerns, it is frequently our go-to recommendation for students who come in for an intake. Groups take place throughout the year. Some are open to everyone, and some require a preliminary screening before you can join, and you may have to wait for an opening. Group titles and times below are for Fall of 2015.
If you are interested in a group, please contact our Office Coordinator, Lisa Brigandi, at 315-859-4340.
Take a breath. Can you feel the air in your lungs? You may notice that your heart rate accelerates, and your thoughts slow down.
This 6-week group focuses on using mindfulness and relaxation to manage the biological, psychological, and emotional aspects of stress. If you struggle with racing thoughts, worry about the future, or difficulty sleeping, you are not alone. Learn new ways to manage and decrease stress and anxiety by effectively utilizing mindfulness relaxation.
Connecting with others is a basic human need. Yet so often our relationships are threatened by conflict, miscommunication and fear. This group will help you understand how you relate to yourself and others in this dynamic and ever-changing social landscape. We may explore romantic and interpersonal relationships, family dynamics, and personal growth and development.
Appointments can be made by calling the Counseling Center at 315-859-4340 or by stopping by the Counseling Center office on the second floor of the Rudd Building. The Office Coordinator can schedule an appointment for a student with any of the professional therapists in the office.
