This process style therapy group will focus on building awareness of maladaptive emotional and relational patterns that drive symptoms of depression and/or anxiety. The group will encourage clients to develop new patterns of engaging with negative emotions within a safe, communal environment. The group is open to graduate and undergraduate University students of all genders. Goals of the group are to: 1) increase exercise, 2) increase self-compassion and awareness of thoughts, feelings and body, and 3) decrease symptoms of depression and anxiety.
