Why Group Therapy?
We want to feel seen and heard. We want human connection. We want to feel like we belong. With group therapy, you get the best of both worlds: the ear of a trained therapist, and the expertise and compassion of your peers. Members learn about themselves by understanding one another. This collective learning based on interpersonal exchanges is transformative.
Fall 2022 Groups
All BCC therapy groups are 45-minutes long and, as of now, meet on Zoom (we will update this info closer to the start of the semester). Groups are open to both undergrads and grad students unless noted. Please note: some details of the Fall 2022 groups might change and/or will not be solidified until August, so keep checking this webpage for the most up-to-date info! Also, most group leaders are not at the BCC over the summer, so if you do register for a group, please keep a lookout for an introductory email in late August.
re:MIND Anxiety and Depression Symposia
The re:MIND Symposia program helps students build essential, fundamental mental health skills and knowledge. Each group is run by a trained clinician specifically focused on a clinical issue. Groups are offered as three weekly sessions at varying times throughout the week.
The Symposia are offered in addition to all other BCC services. Each student who begins treatment with the BCC, or who has been an ongoing individual treatment struggling with symptoms of depression or anxiety, has the option to attend.
