Student Counseling Center

Groups for Fall 2023

The Student Counseling Center is offering six groups for students this semester! We have three therapy groups with pre-registration required and three workshop series with walk-ins welcome. Please see below for flyers with additional information about each group.

Koru Mindfulness

When: 3:30-4:45 select Tuesdays in October (10/10, 10/17, 10/24, and 10/31)

What: A four week class focusing on mindfulness and meditation. Developed at Duke University, this program grew out of Jon Kabat-Zinn’s Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, a program teaching mindfulness and meditation. It was modified over the years to meet the particular needs of college and graduate students. Koru has been shown to reduce stress, improve sleep, and enhance mindfulness and self-compassion in young adults.

Flyer for Healing from Unwanted Sexual Experiences Group

Where: LC Student Counseling Center - Odell Lower Level, Office #012

For more information or to schedule a pre-group appointment: Please email Robin at rkeillor@lclark.edu.

This group will provide an opportunity for survivors to connect with each other and explore issues that come up in “real life”. Combination of discussion, information, and activities. Our goal will be to build skills to manage and reduce distressing thoughts and feelings, expand coping strategies, share experiences, create a greater sense of safety with self and others, and gain a greater understanding of how trauma may be resolved to reduce negative impact. Requires a pre-group appointment (20 – 30 minutes) to discuss the structure and purpose of the group. For more information or to schedule a pre-group appointment please contact Robin at rkeillor@lclark.edu.
