Connections Group

Group Therapy Fall 2015

Group therapy is sometimes the best way to address such concerns, offering benefits that may exceed those of individual therapy.

Some of the benefits of group that Duquesne students have reported in the past include:

  • Your automatic ways of relating with others are likely to "play out" in group, providing a unique opportunity to become aware of your ways of relating while they're happening.
  • You can go one step further than talking about how you'd like to change by actually practicing in group the changes you want to make.
  • You may recognize that you can work through a problem merely by listening to and helping another group member struggling with a similar issue.
  • You may find some relief in sharing your pain and authentic self with other group members, which can help you to do the same in other important relationships.

The Connections groups are confidential and free therapy groups for undergraduate and graduate students at Duquesne. Group members commit to attending weekly sessions, and groups are capped at 8 members.

Groups will meet weekly on either Wednesday from 2 to 3:30 or Friday from 2:30 to 4:00.

How do you Join?

Interested students first meet individually with the group leaders to gain more information about how group might benefit them, and determine if group is an appropriate fit.
