UW-Madison offers a wide array of groups for graduate students that are interested in group counseling. The groups listed below are just a few examples:
Dissertators’ Group – A supportive group environment focused on the emotional, behavioral, and organizational challenges associated with the dissertation process.
Graduate Students’ Support Group – This group examines the sources of stress, ways of coping, and the role of peer support in adjusting to a role that often feels like it’s 24/7 as a graduate student.
Graduate Students of Color Group – For graduate students who identify as people of color, who may experience unique challenges, microaggressions, and lack of supports compared to their White peers and undergraduate counterparts.
Additional groups can be found HERE, and address LGBTQ support, relationships, depression, anxiety, and other topics. These groups fill up very quickly, so students should enroll in these groups at the beginning of the semester.
