The Counseling Center has created its group counseling schedule for the spring semester.

Sometimes a problem is better addressed through group counseling than with an individual counselor. Talking with other students who have similar experiences provides support and perspective.

Groups Include:

  • Graduate Student Group: Tuesdays, 3:15–4:45 p.m.
  • Understanding Self and Others: Wednesdays, 3:30–5:00 p.m.
  • Finding Our Way: Wednesdays, 3:30–5:00 p.m.

To see full descriptions, meeting times, and contact information for these groups, visit the Counseling Center website .

Counseling groups usually include five to eight students and are facilitated by one or two of the Counseling Center’s 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, e-mail the group leaders, or contact Karen Lemasters at lemaster@iup.edu.

All groups have openings at the start of the semester, but will close to new members after the first group meeting.
