Fall 2015 Groups


Men's Group

Facilitated by Dr. Chris Black and Jay Harris, CCSD intern, on Wednesdays from 1 pm-2:30 pm

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. 


Facilitated by Derrance Hughes and Christine Jehu on Tuesdays from 10:30 am-12 pm

Graduate Student Support Group 

This support group is for graduate students and/or non-traditional students aged 24 years and older. Students that are in this slightly older age group often experience different stressors and pressures than younger, "traditional" students face. There may be many reasons that you have come to college later in life. Military, family obligations, second degrees, or career changes may have played a key role in your decision to further your education. You may find this group helpful in addressing personal and/or family challenges, interpersonal communication, relationship issues, problem solving skills, decision making, and much more. 

 Facilitated by Kim McIntyre on Thursdays from 9 am-10:30 am 

The ACT Group is an eight week structured group utilizing the core concepts of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). In this group, members will be invited to explore a new way of living that is more congruent with personal values. Participants will focus on accepting what is out of our control, learn psychological skills to deal with painful thoughts and feelings, clarify personal values, and identify ways to engage in committed values driven action.

Facilitated by Leslie Veach on Mondays from 3 pm-4:30 pm

Sexual Assault Survivors

This group is a safe place for female survivors of sexual assault to gather, learn, heal, and explore their experiences. The group begins with a psychoeducational component, exploring common reactions to sexual assault as well as ways to cope with them. Group members then explore and share about their experiences using a variety of creative, therapeutic techniques, including writing, collaging, music, and more. No one is ever forced to share, but the safe, welcoming, and nonjudgmental milieu that defines this group will foster an environment where all can find common ground and learn from each other as they work to grow and heal.

Facilitated by Kat Bursky and Leslie Veach on Wednesdays from 2:30-4 pm


Co-facilitated by professional staff, this weekly support group provides an opportunity for sexual and gender minorities to explore a wide range of topics such as identity development, coming out to family and friends, relationships and dating, gender transitioning, social stigma, religion, community... and much more! 

Facilitated by Kim McIntyre and Christi Mobley on Mondays from 3-4:30 pm
