Confidential group support is one of the best ways to address growth and life satisfaction. Groups are formed by common factors, including identity and focus, and have been shown to make the change process faster and often more long lasting. Groups work best with consistent attendance, but participants can attend at will. These groups have a special focus on empowerment and consist of weekly one-hour sessions.
SCSU students may attend free of charge.
