Group and Workshop Program

Group counseling and workshops are a popular opportunity for TCNJ students to experience growth and change. CAPS’ Group & Workshop Program offers: support/psychoeducational groups, drop-in groups, and workshops (for more information about these 3 types of groups, please visit our Group FAQs page). Groups overall are a very effective method (and sometimes the MOST effective method) for addressing issues common among TCNJ students. But you don’t need US to persuade you- below are what some TCNJ students have shared about their own group counseling experiences.


What were some of the best aspects of the group experience?

“How very helpful, patient, and understanding both the group facilitators and the other members of the group were.” (Female, senior)

“To talk to others without having to worry about what they think and to be helped by them.” (Male, junior)

“The flow of conversation brought up things I otherwise wouldn’t have remembered.” (Female, senior)

“Being able to express things without fear of being judged.” (Female, freshman)

“I loved how easily it came for me to be apart of group. I did not think a group counseling was for me. But I was 100% wrong.” (Female, freshman)

“Meeting new people and sharing like issues.” (Male, senior)

What changes were you able to make in your life as a participant in a group?

-“Become more confident.”(Female, sophomore)- “Think more positively about myself.” (Male, senior)-  “To be more open about who I am.” (Male, senior)- “Got my academics under control.” (Male, sophomore) – “Worry less about making stuff perfect. Mistakes are okay.” (Male, junior)- “Task management.”(Junior, female)

So come and see for yourself what participation in a group can offer! Please check our group schedule for more information about current groups.
