GROUP PROGRAM: SPRING 2019

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.
