Group therapy schedule
First-generation student group
Description: Do you identify as a first-generation student? This group will focus on building community with others who identify as first-generation students (an individual whose parents/caregiver did not complete a baccalaureate degree), discuss strengths and challenges group members experience, and explore strategies to move members toward self-defined success. The focus of the group will primarily be based on the needs of the group members, and some topics may include culture, stress reduction, social identity, conflict between home life and university life, relationships, school-related stressors, imposter syndrome, and self-care. The group will allow students to explore self-awareness and how they fit in the larger culture of UNR in a safe and open environment.
General interpersonal process group
Mondays: 5:30-7 p.m. or
Thursdays: 2-3:30 p.m.
Description: This is an interpersonal process style therapy group that focuses on building awareness of our selves and our interpersonal styles in a caring community. While the specific focus of each session will be determined by group members' needs, some of the issues addressed may include social connectedness, communication styles, boundaries, self-awareness, emotional expression, trust, identity, and other aspects of interpersonal relationships. The group is open to graduate and undergraduate UNR students.
General support group
Thursdays 2-3 p.m.
Description: This is a group for students who are seeking connection and support while managing general concerns including but not limited to the many recent changes and shifts due to the COVID-19 pandemic, academic stressors, relationship dynamics, etc. Topics to be covered will depend on what students bring to the conversation and will be adjusted based on student needs and desires. The group will be capped at 10 participants. Participants can sign up each week and are not required to come weekly as this is a drop-in style group. Registration is required.
