Counseling and Psychological Services Offers Spring Groups St. Thomas Newsroom January 30, 2012 Counseling and Psychological Services is offering three student groups this semester. Meeting with other people to share common concerns is a great way to gain support and to learn new coping strategies when feeling sad, overwhelmed or confused. Interested students are asked to schedule a brief intake interview by calling (651) 962-6780. Getting Over “E.D.”: Eating Disorder Recovery Group This group is designed to provide students in recovery from an eating disorder the opportunity to share common concerns and gain strategies for maintaining recovery. Students don’t need to have completed a structured eating disorder treatment program, but should have an awareness/acceptance of a current or previous unhealthy relationship with food, eating or body image, and be committed to continuing recovery. The group will meet from noon to 1 p.m. Thursdays in Murray-Herrick Campus Center, Room 370. For additional information email Deb Broderick or Emily Buoen, or call (651) 962-6780.

Meet with others in a supportive atmosphere and learn how to accept and understand some of the difficult emotions you may be experiencing. The group will meet from noon to 1 p.m. Tuesdays in Murray-Herrick Campus Cener, Room 370. For additional information email Sarah Armstrong or Anne Perkins, or call (651) 962-6780.
