Counseling & Psychological Services (CAPS)

Group Services

In-person groups have been temporarily paused in observance of social distancing practices. CAPS counselors facilitate groups remotely through Zoom. Some groups require a pre-group screening while others are drop-in. Currently enrolled students are eligible for groups. Please look below for registration info or follow us on Instagram or Twitter (@cppcaps) for updates. 

Check out some of our workshops on our YouTube channel.

Workshops

In our skill-focused workshops, students can learn coping strategies for a variety of presenting concerns, such as stress, motivation, negative emotions, and communication difficulties. Workshops are not therapy, and participants are not required to disclose information regarding their personal problems. However, participants are encouraged to ask questions and participate in discussion during the workshop.

Workshops are offered throughout the semester and are led by licensed mental health professionals. To attend our virtual workshops, register using the links below or on MyBar by 5 pm the day before the scheduled workshop. Students who register last minute and log in 5 minutes after the workshop start time will not be admitted to the Zoom meeting.

Groups

In our groups, a small number of people meet together weekly under the guidance of professionally trained therapists to experience growth and change. Group participants can share common problems, safely interact with others, learn about themselves, and help others learn about themselves. Groups form throughout the semester and some require a brief screening.

Grief in the Time of COVID-19
