Having Trouble in Your Relationships?

Due to increasing demand, Counseling and Psychological Services will offer a second Relationships Group this fall semester. The new group will be held from noon to 1 p.m. Thursdays beginning today, Oct. 27, and will plan to continue through January. The group will be accepting new members until it is filled.

Students who are interested in learning how to improve their relationships will benefit from this group. Members will be able to explore their interpersonal and communication styles and learn additional relationship-building skills. Whether with family, friends, romantic partners or others, relationships are part of all of our lives. This group will provide members a place to explore their challenges, hopes and questions in relationships, as well as the tools to increase relationship satisfaction.

The Relationships Group also can offer opportunities to feel more connected to others, try out new behaviors, express feelings you have been hesitant to share, assert yourself in new ways, experiment with new ideas and explore important issues in a supportive, confidential environment. As you experience trust and security in the group, you will be more able to take risks, and have the opportunity to learn to live more deliberately.

All groups are held in the Counseling and Psychological Services office on the St. Paul campus, (third floor, Murray-Herrick Campus Center), and an atmosphere of confidentiality is essential and expected.

If interested, schedule a brief intake interview; call (651) 962-6780. For more information email the group leaders, Emily Buoen or Deb Broderick.
