CDSW groups offered Spring 2017

Group counseling not only works, but it is often an effective way to bring about change. You may know a student who could benefit from group counseling — perhaps someone struggling with test anxiety, or social anxiety, or who struggles with depression or feeling overwhelmed by demands. Most problems are rooted in social relationships, and group counseling gets to the heart of our experience as humans. Missouri S&T’s confidential groups offer challenge and support. The counseling, disability support and student wellness (CDSW) webpage has a complete list of groups offered this spring. Check it out or stop by Room 204 Norwood Hallf or a brochure.
