Group Counseling

CAPS Therapy Groups

Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) has updated the Group schedule for the Winter quarter.

Check Winter 2019 Group Flyer for more details.


CAPS offers a series of groups every quarter. If you see a group you are interested in, call (408) 554-4501 and ask to schedule an appointment to meet with the facilitator of that group. You will be scheduled a 30-minute pre-group interview meeting where you will learn more about the group and decide with the facilitator if this group is the best fit for you.

CAPS Therapy Groups:

Groups are confidential, generally 6-8 weeks long, and meet with the same members each week. There are no charges or session limits for CAPS groups. Inquire about group times with the front desk staff or your CAPS therapist. Groups with sufficient interest will be offered. Below is a list of groups we have offered in the past.

Breaking Free From Anxiety:

Tired of the grip anxiety has had over your life? This skills group will provide information and coping techniques to assist you in breaking the cycle of anxiety in a supportive environment.

Counseling Psychology Therapy Group:

Weekly therapy process group for Counseling Psychology graduate students.

Food, Body, and Soul:

Does it feel like body dissatisfaction is taking over your life? Are you tired of thinking of food too much and wish you could just “eat normally?” This group will give you the skills to cultivate a healthy relationship with food and your body.

Stay Woke Wednesdays:

Specifically for student activists. Come collaborate. Practice self-preservation, find your personal plan for burn out prevention.

Mindfulness Drop-in Group:

Each Wednesday at 4 PM starting on (10/12) Mindfulness is the practice of being aware and open to one’s experience in the present, moment by moment. This is a weekly, 30 minute, open group which you can attend just once or as much as you’d like. Instructions will be provided for how to meditate and practice mindfulness in your daily life. No previous experience is required.

Understanding Yourself & Others:
