Group Roster: 2014-2015
What is Group Therapy?
CAPS is pleased to offer group therapy services to the FAU student population. We are very excited and highly committed to offering therapy groups. Many people have stereotypes about group therapy or wonder what really happens in a therapy group. Group therapy is a form of psychotherapy, focusing on developing insight, understanding feelings and behavior change. Four to ten clients meet with one or two experienced group therapists. Most therapy groups meet every week at the same time for 1.5 hours a week. Additionally, we also offer themed workshops and discussion groups. A “group screening” with the group therapist(s) is scheduled prior to a group member joining. Clients must have had an initial assessment prior to having a group screening. During the group time, the members of the group discuss the issues that are concerning them and offer each other support and feedback. Interpersonal interaction is highly valued and encouraged.
Each semester CAPS offers a variety of counseling groups. The groups are open only to FAU students. Starting dates for the groups will vary. Services offered by CAPS are covered as long as you are enrolled and have paid the Health Fee. In order to join group, a student must have had a “group screening.” A “initial appointment” with one of the center’s counselor is necessary prior to having a “group screening” scheduled. Confidentiality in group is strictly respected.
