Groups are led by professional staff in a safe, confidential environment; they usually have between 5 and 8 people. Groups are very effective for getting support, learning new skills, and enhancing interpersonal communication. Most people really like group and find it to be very useful once they overcome initial concerns around joining. Participation is free to students (regardless of the number of credits they carry), and costs $50 per semester for faculty, staff, and community members.
