Group therapy provides a safe and confidential place to share and explore concerns as well as receive support around various issues. Many groups are being offered at CAPS such as process-oriented groups (helps people cope and provides opportunity for change and growth), support groups (helps people cope and problem solve) and psychoeducational groups (provides information about a topic and provides support).
To utilize this service:
Most of our groups require a 20 minute meeting prior to group where you will learn more about the group and decide with the facilitator(s) if it is the best "fit" for you. Groups consist of 6-8 students meeting weekly and are available for all registered students. There is no cost since your student fees provide the funding. Groups run per term, with the opportunity to continue with the start of each new term.
The time and day for each group is listed and our office should be contacted if you need more information or are interested in participating in the group. If you are not sure what group you may be interested in call and ask to speak with the Groups' Coordinator, Michele Ribeiro, Ed.D., who will be able to assist you in choosing a group that is appropriate for your needs. You can reach us at 541-737-2131, on the 5th floor of Snell Hall. Please let us know if you need disability accomodations.
