Groups and Workshops


Spring 2021 Group Offerings


Interpersonal Process Group
The UP Health and Counseling Center is pleased to announce a free interpersonal process group therapy opportunity for the Spring semester! 
This group is intended to be a safe(er) space for individuals to explore both intra- and interpersonal issues while receiving valuable feedback from both therapists and other group members. Group therapy may be a good fit for those interested in exploring their relationship patterns, increasing their capacity for emotional closeness, and learning how to express feelings and needs. 
The group is open to adults of all genders, ethnicities, sexualities, religions, and capabilities. 
The group will meet over Zoom once every week on Tuesdays from 3:00 PM to 4:15 PM. We ask that participants ensure they have a private space, a stable internet connection, and are comfortable keeping their cameras on throughout the sessions. Consistent attendance is required. Please contact the HCC at or 503.943.7134 to see if this group would be a good fit for you!


Men’s Process Group

Men in our society often feel emotionally isolated and limited in their ability to express themselves authentically. We’re often taught to never show vulnerability or to stuff our feelings down or risk looking “weak.” Now more than ever, we may find ourselves seeking to find support, connection, and community. This group is for male-identified people willing to join one another to share thoughts, emotions, struggles, and victories.
Some goals of the group are to help break down barriers to self-understanding and authentic self-expression; escape society’s expectations of masculinity and cultivate a healthy masculinity; resist shame and support our basic human need for support and connection; and develop insight through an open, honest dialogue.
This weekly process group will meet on Wednesdays from 3 to 4:15, via Zoom, throughout the term. The group will be facilitated by two group leaders from the Health and Counseling Center, and is open to all male-identified people interested in personal growth through solidarity and community support. Please contact the HCC to see if the group would be a good fit for you.
