CAPS counseling groups usually form at the beginning of each quarter and typically meet once a week for about ninety minutes. Take advantage of this opportunity to learn, share, and grow with others. Note that most groups require a pre-group interest appointment - to learn more about the group and whether it will meet your particular needs.
During Fall 2020, the telehealth (Zoom) groups listed below are being offered at CAPS. If interested, call CAPS at 509.359.2366 to schedule a pre-group consultation. If you simply have questions about a particular group, please call CAPS for more information. Additional groups may be offered based on student interest (just ask!).
