Available support groups for Summer 2013
These groups will help support students to maintain a level of function during stress and provide resources for situational issues. The group leaders will utilize a curriculum in order to help students develop coping skills as well as provide a supportive environment for shared learning. The groups will be structured as rotating four-week cycles; students may enter at any point throughout the cycle. Students may choose to attend as many or as few sessions as necessary.
