Reasons to join a group

Group works! In studies comparing group to individual therapy, group therapy has been shown to be as effective and sometimes even more effective than individual therapy. Check out the kinds of groups offered at Roosevelt!

The following are brief descriptions of the groups currently offered at the Counseling Center. The details about when and where they are offered are located on our Groups Offered page.

Interpersonal Process Groups (IPGs) are for students seeking personal growth and social connection. Participants will help each other develop greater self-awareness and increased ability to develop satisfying relationships. The idea is that by interacting with others in a safe and trusting environment, participants can learn from each other, while giving and receiving support around the many personal issues that university students confront.
