GROUP PROGRAM: SPRING 2020 SCHEDULE

A note about clinical groups:
The University Counseling Center offers a wide variety of Clinical Groups and Workshops throughout each academic year. Some of our clinical groups are process-oriented, while others are skills-based. Each client admitted to the Group Program must attend a Drop-In appointment and be referred to specific groups by a UCC Clinician. Determination of group participation may depend on presenting concerns, client diagnosis, safety assessment, readiness for change as well as scheduling and other logistics. Please review the following group options and speak to your clinician about your interest!

ACADEMIC EMPOWERMENT

Mondays, 4:00 – 5:00 PM; in Knight Hall February 03 – March 02

These workshops focus on awareness of time, proactive planning, estimating the correct hours of studying necessary to succeed, and developing long term studying habits. Students will learn how to approach professors or why you might want to meet with them; describe the many benefits you can gain from meeting with your instructors, teaching, and graduate assistants. We will also talk about different learning styles and strategies to help you get the most out of your time, reduce testing anxiety, and to create a productive study environment.
