Group/Outreach

The CAPS staff is regularly working to provide group therapy and outreach workshops that are relevant to the UC Merced campus community. This page will provide information regarding the current groups and outreaches that CAPS has planned.

If you have a group or outreach that you would like to see CAPS provide that is not listed you can email CAPS at counseling@ucmerced.edu to submit your request/suggestion to CAPS for consideration.

Group

Counseling groups typically meet once per week for anywhere between 3 and 10 weeks, with each session lasting approximately 1 hour. Most counseling groups are structured around a particular topic or area of concern (e.g., stress management or body image), although some counseling groups are more process oriented to allow students a greater opportunity to connect, encourage, and support one another. For some groups it may be necessary for each potential group member to undergo a group screen with the group leader to assure that a particular group is appropriate for you and to adequately prepare you for the group counseling experience. Please stop by or phone Counseling & Psychological Services if you are interested in group counseling.

Outreach

Counseling & Psychological Services offers professional presentations and workshops spanning a range of topics for students, faculty, and/or staff. We will conduct outreach activities in a variety of settings and formats. We request that outreach services be requested four weeks in advance in order for us provide a high quality product.
