Group therapy provides a safe and confidential place to explore concerns around various issues. Talking to other students who have had similar experiences offers support, healing, and perspective. Groups typically consist of 6-8 students meeting weekly. All groups at NYU are led by trained therapists. For some students, attending a group is one of the most powerful and rewarding experiences they have during their NYU years.

NYU students have the extraordinary opportunity to participate in groups on a variety of topics. Please see the full list of groups with descriptions below.

To sign up for a group or obtain more information call the main counseling phone line at (212) 998-4780. During this call you can be scheduled for a brief 20 minute meeting with the group facilitator to learn more about the group, have any questions answered, and collaboratively decide if the group is a good fit for you. Groups are available at no cost to all registered NYU students.

For additional information about the CWS Group Program please contact Genny Cuocci LCSW, CASAC at (212) 992-5678 or
