The Counseling Center

Suites on Maple East G-31

Sometimes a problem is better
addressed through group counseling than with an individual counselor. Research
has shown that group counseling is as effective as individual counseling.
Talking with other students who have similar experiences provides support and
perspective. The following counseling, support and growth groups are offered at
The Counseling Center in G31 Suites on Maple East. These groups usually include 4-9 students and are facilitated by
one or two therapists. Group facilitators work to provide a safe, confidential
environment where members are free to discuss their thoughts, feelings and
concerns as they are comfortable. Participation in these groups requires an
initial meeting with the group facilitator(s), usually 30-45 minutes. To
schedule this meeting or to ask questions: contact the Counseling Center at
(724)357-2621, stop by G31 Suites on Maple East, or contact Patti Shaffer at


The following groups have openings but will close to
new members after the first group meeting. See below for beginning dates and
