Support Groups are initiated by individual SCS staff members based on student interest and the staff member’s area of expertise. Please view the list of current offerings below. If a student is interested in participating in one of our current groups or has a suggestion for a new group, he or she should call the SCS front desk at (773) 702-9800 and express interest.
The Support Groups offered at SCS vary in number of weeks that they meet and the frequency with which a particular group is offered during the academic year. Please see Current Group Offerings for more details about a specific group.
All of the Support Groups have a selection process which usually requires a pre-group interview. This selection process includes an assessment of an individual’s psychological readiness to participate in a group, the fit with the other group members, and the individual’s ability to positively contribute to the group process. If a student is not selected for a particular group, SCS will make every effort to find an appropriate group opportunity for the student.
