Counseling for students is routinely provided by the university where one is a student.
High schools may have a counselor on staff, but colleges and universities provide a full range of services to students, ranging from emergency services to career counseling to resources for topics from ADD to Veterans Services
Every year thousands of students use Student Counseling Services for career planning, to attend an outreach event, or to utilize counseling services.
If you are like most people you will encounter a number of life events while a student that will leave you confused, anxious, angry or sad. While life situations often work themselves out, sometimes they linger and require assistance. The staff at SCS is well trained to help you with issues ranging from homesickness and relationship difficulties to concerns such as depression and anxiety. For these reasons and many, many more, you can turn to Student Counseling Services. SCS offers both individual counseling and group counseling.
Individual counseling generally involves focusing on the concerns you have raised. Individual counseling at Student Counseling Services uses a short-term therapy model. You and your counselor develop strategies to address your goals, and then determine the length of time needed to resolve these concerns.
Counseling sessions last about 50 minutes, Most students complete between two and eight sessions. These meetings are conducted in private, and all records are confidential. The goal of counseling is to help you acquire the skills needed to live a more effective life and successfully overcome a difficult challenge.
Group therapy is frequently the treatment of choice for college students; in many ways group therapy is the very best of what we have to offer. If group therapy has been recommended to you it’s because your counselor believes that it is the best way to address your concerns. What is talked about in group is confidential and not discussed with anyone outside of group sessions.
Group counseling brings together a small number of individuals (usually 8-10) with one or more trained group leaders. Group members share what is troubling them. The process of sharing with each other, listening to each other, giving and receiving feedback, offering support and expressing their feelings about what someone else says or does can be extremely helpful. Group members begin to see that they are not alone. This interaction encourages individuals to develop new ways of behaving and learning more about how they interact with others. As a result, the original difficulties people brought to group become resolved.
When I was beginning my personal growth journey, a wise person told me that when I was feeling resentful or afraid or sad, that I should remember the phrase "gratitude is the attitude" when I was ready to feel better. That phrase has helped me feel better tens of thousands of times.
Would you share what you are most grateful for? Your story could be just what another person is searching for to renew themselves? Thanks.
