Introduction to Group Therapy
Groups at the Counseling Center can be formed around a variety of topics and concerns, based on need and request. Generally, the following groups are available at the Counseling Center each semester. You can also suggest a group topic you would like the Counseling Center to offer. Please call us at 937-229-3141.
This group can be especially helpful for people who have concerns about their relationships or relationship patterns. Often times, faulty relationship patterns and interpersonal strategies contribute to other difficulties in life-often times, the difficulties that bring students into the Counseling Center in the first place.
This group will help group members identify their typical relationship patterns and interpersonal style and modify those patterns that keep them from creating and maintaining the kinds of relationships they desire. Participants will give and receive feedback to each other about their interpersonal styles in order to help each other gain awareness about how they impact others in relationships.
The basic idea is this - each participant will likely interact with other group members in a way that resembles the way he/she interacts with other significant people in his/her life. This presents the opportunity to experiment with different ways of relating to others in the group, and eventually, make similar changes in relationships outside of the group.
