Contact CSSD for additional information on the following groups:

Coping Skills Group 
The Coping Skills Group is designed as an adjunctive skills training for individuals who are already receiving individual counseling at the center. Through this group, participants learn coping skills that will help them to more effectively regulate emotions and manage interpersonal conflicts. During each group session, new skills will be presented and members will engage in activities to help build mastery of each skill. The group will provide instruction on basic mindfulness skills, distress tolerance skills, emotion regulation skills and interpersonal effectiveness skills. The group will meet on Thursdays from 3:00-4:30. If you are interested in attending, please speak to your individual therapist or contact Tabitha Emsley or Brittany Gay at 328-6661. 


Co-facilitated by openly LGBTQ-identified staff of the ECU Center for Counseling and Student Development, “InsideOUT”is an informal, unstructured support group for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender students to explore issues of concern in a “safe place.” Discussion topics range widely from issues related to identity development, coming out to family and friends, relationships and dating, gender transitioning, social stigma, religion, queer life in Greenville ... and everything in-between! We will additionally focus on communication and how we relate to one another.  If you are interested, please call 328-6661 and ask to speak with Dr. Kaden “ks” Stanley, or by email at 

Understanding Self and Others

This group is a safe environment where one may develop more self-awareness and grow personally while exploring oneself in relationship with others. Presenting concerns frequently include: anxiety, social anxiety, depression, peer relations as well as romantic relations, and family issues that have impacted self-concept (among many others.) Basically, people who are motivated to work on improving some aspect of themselves can benefit from this experiential learning opportunity. Often members benefit by finding effective ways to connect and communicate with others while addressing their own personal concerns. For more information or to talk about joining this group, please call the Center for Counseling and Student Development (328-6661) and ask for Dr. Christi Mobley.

Second Wind

Do you feel like you are "catching your second wind?"

Second Wind is an interpersonal process group for non-traditional students aged 24 years and older and/or graduate students at ECU.  Students that are in this slightly older age group often experience different stressors and pressures than the younger, traditional student faces. There could be many reasons that you have come to college later in life.  Military, family obligations, second degree attempts, or work trials could have all played a key role in this.


Second Wind is here to help with many things including but not limited to:

·         Interpersonal communication

·         Relationships

·         Family stress

·         Having lower levels of support

·         Guidance in adjustment to college when you may not be the ‘typical’ college student


This group will begin on Monday, January 27, 2013 and runs from 3:00 pm- 4:30pm. If it will be your first time attending this group, you will need to schedule a pre-group screening that will take place at 2:30 pm the day of group; this is a one-time occurrence.  Please feel free to contact the group facilitators, Kim McIntyre or Emily Wood, at 328-6661 if you have any questions.  Let us help you “catch your second wind”!
