CAPS’ Groups for CoE Students

Understanding Self and Others (USO) Group

These confidential, semester-long counseling groups are available for CoE students who live in the state of Michigan currently and are enrolled in classes for the fall 2021 semester. These virtual CAPS interpersonal process groups are designed for CoE students who want to explore personal growth and gain awareness to enhance their functioning in personal and academic settings. This is a group for CoE students who have concerns about important relationships in their life, need more support, want to be supportive of others, and want time to explore feelings and thoughts. This virtual space will establish a strong collaborative environment to foster healthy self-concepts and hope for the future, through a sense of shared experiences. This group will require a semester commitment. Three sections of this group will be facilitated by Kayla Douglas, LLMSW & Nidaa Shaikh, PsyD: 1) CoE Graduate Students only, 2) 1st Year CoE Undergraduate Students Only, and 3) 2nd Year Undergraduate Students Only.
