Summer 2013 Groups
Assertive Communication Workshop: Learn to initiate conversations and to ask for what you need without feeling guilty. Improve your appropriate expression of thoughts and feelings. Structured exercises teach skills for communicating directly, while respecting the rights of both self and others. Six sessions.
Understanding Self and Others: Are you wanting to develop better relationship skills? This group provides an opportunity for individuals to learn from each other, while giving and receiving support around the many personal issues that university students confront. Participants will help each other develop greater self-awareness and increased ability to develop satisfying relationships. Relationships, self-confidence, balancing demands, and more–this group will address the issues of greatest concern to its particular members.
Pursuing Happiness Workshop: An opportunity for students to learn how to implement positive emotions, character strengths, and a sense of meaning into their academic and personal life. We will learn about the mental and physical health benefits of positive psychology and promote the positive, as well as alleviating negative aspects of life.

Especially for Graduate Students
All UCCS groups are open to graduate students. In addition, we offer the following groups especially for graduate students:
Graduate Student Support Group: An opportunity to share experiences, give and receive support, and learn from each other in a safe environment. Discussions will address the issues of greatest concern to participants and might include stress, relationships, and achieving balance in one's life.
Dissertation and Thesis Support Groups: These groups, which meet every other week, provide support and focus on problem-solving strategies for graduate students at the dissertation or thesis stage. These groups are very popular and there is frequently a wait for an opening. Several groups are running currently, and space becomes available as students complete their degrees.
