Group Counseling and Workshops
Working on issues within a group setting can be a highly supportive and productive way to address personal concerns. Students who share common concerns meet weekly or as-needed as a group with one or more clinicians to explore a specific topic and develop coping skills. Group offerings vary each semester and lists are updated a few weeks before the semester begins.
CTS offers both weekly workships and by-appointment groups. If a group is indicated as a drop-in group, students can attend group sessions weekly or on an as-needed basis without an appointment (student will be registered upon attending or if calling in prior). If a group is indicated as a group in which an informational appointment is needed, an individual must schedule an information appointment prior to attending group to determine if group will be able to meet their needs. By-appointment groups require a weekly commitment.
Please see our group list to determine if any groups would fit you. If a drop-in group feels appropriate, feel free to “drop in” a few minutes prior to the start of group; if you are experiencing suicidal ideation, please call CTS at 940-565-2741 and ask to schedule a group screening appointment for the particular group prior to attending your first group, to ensure that group will be a good fit for you. If a group requiring an informational appointment feels beneficial, please call CTS at 940-565-2741 and ask to schedule a group screening for the particular group.

Women's Body Wellness
OPEN AGAIN IN FALL!, Chestnut Hall 311
This group will offer a safe space to explore issues related to sexism, sizeism, body image, self-esteem, and food. If what you've been taught and told of what a woman should look like is creating conflict and distress in your life, this is a great group to get support and challenge rigid body image, sexism, and sizeism. Self-compassion and self-kindness will be woven in the group.
