Would you like to feel stronger? To learn coping skills for managing your emotions? To connect with peers and professionals who understand you and want to help? The Center for Counseling and Wellness is here for you! Check out these great seminars, workshops and groups offered for free on campus.
Not sure which resource is right for you? Stop by the Center for Counseling & Wellness to set up a brief screening—a counselor will work with you to identify which of the resources at our center is the best fit for your needs and goals. Given that a wide variety of personal difficulties are best addressed in the context of a seminar, workshop, or group, students seeking other services at Counseling & Wellness may be asked to complete one of these services first. (Data shows that students report higher benefit from workshops and group therapy as compared to individual therapy at Counseling & Wellness in a number of different areas.) Students are encouraged to communicate openly with their screening counselor regarding any additional needs.
To sign up for a seminar, workshop, or group, click the sign-up button on this webpage. Or stop by our office (SC368), call us at 616–526–6123, or email us at email@example.com. Students who have not completed a screening during this academic year will be scheduled for a brief screening prior to participating in a workshop or group. We look forward to seeing you soon.
These workshops provide a confidential and supportive environment where you can learn to strengthen your emotional wellness and build resilience amidst life’s challenges. New clients will be scheduled for a brief screening at CCW prior to participating in a workshop.

Groups are an opportunity for you to go in-depth with your thoughts, feelings and experiences—an opportunity to practice authenticity in a confidential and safe environment. Groups are arranged around topics or shared goals. New clients will be scheduled for a brief screening at CCW prior to participating in a group.
All Counseling & Wellness services are offered free of charge. Given that the subject of each workshop and group builds from week to week, committed students are typically asked to attend all sessions of a workshop or group. While workshops last for three weeks, groups can last up to a full semester. Please note that there is a $15 fee for missed sessions without notice, including workshops and most groups.
