Counseling Services offers spring semester therapy groups

Submitted by Melissa King

Counseling Services offers group therapy to all K-State students during each semester. Group is the preferred therapy option for students wanting to better understand themselves and how they relate to and impact others.

Group therapy is the recommended way to address unfulfilling relationships that stem from difficulty saying "no," not opening up to others out of concern for being a burden or being judged, tending to share too much early on in relationships and overwhelming others, feeling alone or isolated, feeling anxious in social situations and more. Group therapy also can be helpful for concerns such as depression, anxiety, adjusting to college and better understanding yourself and your emotions.

Spring 2019 group offerings:

  • Calming the Storm — for students wanting to build skills to more effectively manage emotions and distress.
  • Graduate and Nontraditional Students Group — for those graduate or nontraditional students seeking support and to improve their relationships.
  • Living with Loss — for students experiencing grief after the loss of someone they were close to.
  • Spectrum — for individuals who identify as LGBTQ; a place to seek support and increase self-acceptance.
  • Understanding Self and Others — open to all students interested in improving their self-understanding and relationships with others through giving and receiving interpersonal feedback.

Cost for most groups is $7 per session, and they meet weekly all semester.
