Group Therapy & Workshops

What is the difference between groups and workshops?

Both groups and workshops are powerful treatment modalities. Their power lies in the support and feedback given by other participants as well as by the facilitators. They offer a supportive and affirming space for students to discuss challenges and build connections. Appropriate self-disclosure within groups and workshops may take place at the student’s own comfort level and pace. While joining a group or workshop can feel intimidating, these treatment modalities offer advantages that cannot be found in individual counseling.

  • Please note: Urgent Care and Drop-in Consultation are also additional resource options.
  • Navigating a loss? Grief can take many forms, and the journey will look and feel different for everyone. You may be wondering where to begin, or how to hold your identities as a student and a bereaved person at the same time. If you or someone you know is mourning a loved one, the UCC is here to help. Email to learn more.

This workshop emphasizes deepening understanding of what ADHD is and isn't, improving work completion, time management, and organization, while also touching on cognitive behavioral and mindfulness interventions. Weekly workshops are for actively engaging in skill-building in these areas in a scaffolded, supportive environment. Refuel weeks are about community-building and putting the skills to work. 

 A verified diagnosis of ADHD is not required for this workshop; any interested student is welcome! Please call 615.322.2571 and ask for Frances or 615.322.0480 and ask for Samantha or email or for more information about this workshop.
