More Details

Wednesday Group (A Dramatization)

What are groups?
Groups are students interacting with other students, sharing concerns with others in similar situations. At times student issues are most effectively explored in a safe and supportive environment where interaction occurs with others. Groups are designed to facilitate growth and skill development by focusing on concerns central to student life.  Curious about what a group might look like?  See the dramatization above.

Who can attend?
The groups and workshops are open to all currently enrolled as K-State students.  Make an appointment to talk about group with a counselor.

Why choose group counseling?
Group counseling supports students' personal growth as they explore relationships and other issues such as: depression, anxiety, loss, diversity issues, relationship/communication skills, stress management, and life transitions. Through group counseling students will be able to identify with others who are experiencing similar concerns and increase their self-awareness in a safe, supportive, and confidential setting.

Benefits of group are:

  • Provides multiple perspectives/ideas
  • Decreases feelings of loneliness by seeing you are not alone
  • Helps you to learn new relationship skills
  • Provides a secure environment to practice new relationship skills
  • A cost effective and beneficial treatment alternative to individual therapy
  • A chance to help others while getting help

When are groups offered?
Groups are offered during the Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters.

Is there a charge?

Effective January 2020, we are happy to announce that there is no charge for group.
