Group Counseling and Mental Health Workshops

groupcounselingmentalhealthGroups are formed to create a supportive forum for people with similar issues. In group counseling, six to 12 individuals meet, at an assigned time, with one or two group leaders, usually on a weekly basis. Group members talk about what is currently going on in their lives and what may be troubling them. Group leaders and other group members are available to give support and offer alternatives and feedback to members of the group.

Workshops are educational presentations for students that are designed to enhance personal growth and to lessen stress and anxiety. Typical workshops include stress management, relationship issues, anger management, assertiveness training, eating disorders and body issues, grief and loss, and sexual abuse and assault. The Student Counseling Center welcomes requests for other workshops.

All groups are free for Adelphi students. Call 516.877.3646 to sign up for a group or to get more information.

LGBTQ+ Student Empowerment Group

If you are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning and would like a place to build community, please contact us at to find out more about programs we offer.  We’ll spend our time discussing topics and issues that are relevant to the group including: identity development, coming out, navigating being LGBTQ on Adelphi’s campus, bullying or other forms of abuse/harassment, and accessing LGBTQ resources. You don’t need to register beforehand. We ask participants to respect the rules of the group—these are available at the beginning of each group but include such things as keeping everything that is said within the group confidential, respecting the individual situation of others in the group, and not pressuring anyone into saying anything if they don’t want to. If you have any questions, please contact Scott Zotto at the Student Counseling Center at 516.877.3679.
