Counseling Service offering men's engagement therapy group

Submitted by Counseling Services

Counseling Services is offering the Men's Engagement Group, a therapy group for eligible K-State students. The group will meet virtually from 2:30-4 p.m. on Mondays.

This group is a semi-structured space for men who need help and support around issues such as relationships, stress, achievement and emotions. Many times, the cultural norms of masculinity and what it takes to be a man can leave us feeling depleted and isolated or create barriers to connection. This group is a place to form relationships with other men, so you know you're not alone. It is also a place to gain greater insight into the expectations that have been placed on you so you can decide which ones you want to enact and which you want to leave behind. We'll work together to cultivate autonomy and agency, so you can go confidently toward your goals.

If you have questions or would like to join the group, call Counseling Services at 785-532-6927 to schedule a telehealth appointment with the group co-facilitators Kodee Walls, Ph.D., LP, and Chris Praetzel, M.S., M.A.
