 Do you ever feel emotionally confused and overwhelmed? These emotions can be hard to understand, let alone regulate, and telling yourself not to feel them doesn’t work. This group is for students who want to learn skills for identifying and understanding their emotions, overcome obstacles that get in the way of changing emotions and increasing positive emotional experiences. With practice and use, these skills can enhance one’s sense of personal and relational well-being. Interested students are asked to schedule a screening appointment before attending the group session by contacting Counseling Services at 845-575-3314.
