Group Counseling

people sitting around a table in a roomGroups led by professional staff offer a supportive and stimulating environment to explore common issues of concern. We encourage you to browse our complete list of current groups offered this semester at the Counseling Center. Group therapy is free and confidential for all enrolled Stockton University students.

Group therapy has been found to be an effective form of treatment and is equivalent to and sometimes more effective than individual therapy for certain concerns. Group therapy helps people talk about things in a more genuine way which helps them address the heart of their struggles and find improvements in their symptoms or concerns.  
Students interested in group counseling services can join in person or via telehealth. Please reach out to the CAPS office to sign up or ask any questions. 

Most of our groups use an open group structure, which means students can join at any point in the semester.
