Student Counseling

Group Counseling

The group format generally involves members who come together to discuss common concerns once each week. Group members are encouraged to explore their style of coping and relating to other members by interacting freely and honestly in a supportive environment. An environment of privacy and respect is highly valued and individuals are encouraged to maintain the confidentiality of fellow group members. Unless otherwise noted, all groups meet in the Student Health and Counseling Center, Room 106, which can be accessed through the north entrance door of the Wellness and Campus Living Center, North Campus. There is no charge for participation in groups; attendance is limited to currently enrolled Hofstra University Students.
