At Loyola University New Orleans, the University Counseling Center (UCC) offers a wide range of services for the Wolf Pack Community ranging from individual counseling to aid in finding insurance. Group counseling is a great example of how the UCC strives to meet the varied needs of Loyola students.
Group counseling offers students the ability to attend counseling with their peers, to see how they relate, and to learn from and support each other during their time at Loyola. Although group counseling may seem daunting at first glance, therapy in a group setting can offer a new and unique perspective on mental health and face the challenges of college life. For the spring 2018 semester, the UCC will be offering the following groups: SASS, Sexual Assault Survivors Group, and Grief Process Group.
Social Anxiety Skills Set, or S.A.S.S, is a group that aims to ease social anxiety and gain perspective and coping mechanisms around social interactions. S.A.S.S will guide students through social anxiety triggers and project them onto a path toward successful relationships.
Sexual Assault Survivors Group
The Sexual Assault Survivors Group is a support based group and is open to those who are looking to share with others who have been through similar experiences.
Grief Process Group
If you begin to notice that your thoughts and feelings of grief are interfering with day-to-day living, or if you would like to talk about your grief in a safe and private space, consider joining the Grief Process Group.
All groups are confidential and free for any enrolled Loyola student to attend. Suggestions on other group offerings are always welcome! If you would like to submit an idea or are interested in becoming a group member, please contact the UCC at 504.865.3835 or visit us in the Danna Center, on the second floor, just above the Orleans Room.
