Groups & Workshops
Why try a group or workshop? Participation in one of our workshops or groups provides a safe and supportive place to discuss your concerns, gain support, and/or learn coping skills with others who may have similar challenges. A group can be a wonderful source of feedback, support, good humor, and creative ideas. All workshops and groups and led by licensed clinicians.
Workshops are professionally facilitated programs that focus on topics such as anxiety, stress, sexual health, relationships, and conflict management. Workshops are singular events for clubs, teams, or residences to host for their members. Program hosts and organizers should contact clinicians directly or request workshops at least two weeks in advance.
Groups are professionally facilitated programs that focus on identified topics specific to the needs of Denison students. Groups are ongoing throughout the semester and students are encouraged to attend regularly.
