The ASU Counseling Center is now offering group teletherapy via a secure Zoom Telehealth platform. Interested in joining a group? Get started by calling us at (828) 262-3180 to schedule an Initial Consultation.
Quick Access Groups: These workshop-style groups allow students to get started quickly and are focused on building coping skills for common mental health concerns. Each group is offered weekly and students are encouraged to attend for 3-4 consecutive weeks. Participation is encouraged, though students are not expected to share many personal details.
Students can also find recorded versions of our Quick Access group content on the Counseling Center’s YouTube channel.
- Anxiety Toolbox: We can’t eliminate all stressors, but we can balance them with coping skills! This experiential and psychoeducational workshop will provide students who experience anxiety and stress-related issues with simple, effective coping skills they can incorporate into their lives to reduce distress and increase positive coping and self-care.
- HEALS (Healthy Emotions and Life Skills): This Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)-based workshop will teach effective strategies to enhance your life and well-being. You will learn practical skills that can be implemented immediately. Topics include being mindful in the present moment, regulating difficult emotions, being effective in interpersonal relationships, and coping well with difficult situations.
- Kind Mind: Struggling to cope with the harsh, self-critical voice in your head? Struggling to treat yourself with kindness and grace? Join us for Kind Mind to practice skills that are shown to improve mood, support healthier self-esteem, and build compassion for yourself and others.
Full-semester Therapy Groups: These groups meet weekly throughout the semester, allowing students to build connections, make progress toward goals, and discuss a broad range of mental health topics.
Understanding Self and Others: Issues commonly addressed include depression, anxiety, relationship concerns, self-esteem, issues of family conflict or abuse, etc. Students who want to resolve specific concerns as well as those seeking personal growth are welcome. This can be a good time to get peers’ perspectives on various issues, and to recognize that you are not alone.
Tuesdays 2-3:30pm, Wednesdays 3:30-5pm, and Thursdays 3-4:30pm.
Connections: This group welcomes students from diverse identities, cultures, and backgrounds to share and connect in a supportive and empowering space. Goals of the group will be to facilitate connection, have open conversations about well-being, and build skills for communication and managing stress.
Food/Mood: This group is designed for students who use food and/or exercise to cope in ways that would be considered "unhealthy". Through support and exploration of our personal selves, we will focus on the development of more positive coping skills and learn to better manage the underlying issues that often trigger such negative behaviors.
LGBTQQ+ (Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual/Transgender/Queer/Questioning+): This group will present an opportunity for students with diverse sexual orientations and gender identities to explore life challenges together. It will provide a supportive environment in which to address a variety of issues (e.g., coming out, spirituality, family relationships, depression, self-esteem, etc.). Goals include reducing isolation, finding support and making positive changes.
