  • Balanced Living Group

    We’re all doing the best we can and most of us want to improve, but sometimes, we find ourselves repeating the same ineffective patterns. This group is based on the notion that all thoughts, actions, and emotions are caused by something, and that figuring out and changing the causes of behavior work better than judging and blaming ourselves and others. Designed to supplement individual therapy, this structured group will teach students skills in the following areas: mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, emotion regulation, and distress tolerance. This group will teach students to use more effective behaviors and eliminate those that are unhelpful or destructive with the goal of building a life that feels more worth living.

    If you are interested in the group and/or have questions, please contact Dr. Glass at 434.395.2409 or longwoodCAPS@longwood.edu.

  • Trauma Support Group

    It is not unusual for many of us to experience traumatic events in our lives; however, for some, the process of recovery can be more challenging. The college environment and life stressors can make it even more difficult for students to begin healing from trauma. The Trauma Support Group will combine psychoeducation about traumatic experiences and the effects on our bodies, minds, and relationships, with a supportive environment for students to feel comfortable discussing their experiences and the impact of trauma on their lives. This group will be open to students who have endured various types of trauma, including (but not limited to), verbal abuse, physical or sexual assault, and witnessing or involvement in horrific experiences. The goal of the Trauma Support Group will be to provide a safe place for students to come together and support one another in recovery.

    If you are interested in the group and/or have questions, please contact Dr. Glass at 434.395.2409 or longwoodCAPS@longwood.edu.

  • Grief and Loss Support Group

    College campuses can be a difficult environment to find a place to stop and reflect on the impact of losing someone. Students can often experience difficulties after losing someone, such as isolation and depression, since healing from grief is not an easy process. Sometimes the process can be long and painful. This  grief group is designed to help students set aside a time and place to reflect, remember, and heal. This group provides a confidential and safe environment for students to explore their grief.  We hope to help students along their journey towards healing by establishing a supportive place for students to discuss their loss.

    The group meets on Tuesdays starting at 3:30pm in CAPS's group room.  If you are interested in the group and/or have questions, please contact Dr. McKinney at 434.395.2409 or longwoodCAPS@longwood.edu.

  • Stress and Anxiety Management Group

    This group is designed for people who have symptoms related to stress and anxiety and are seeking support and learning methods to cope with stress.  This is a support group where students who suffer from stress and anxiety can attend and get support and constructive feedback from other students who suffer with problems related to stress/anxiety.  Counselors also will tailor and present  psychoeducational information on how to manage stress/anxiety at the  request of the group.    The group is a great place to get support from counselors and fellow students for issues related to stress/anxiety.

    If you are interested in the group and/or have questions, please contact Dr. David Davino at 434-395-2409.

  • A.C.T. Group

    This support group was established at Longwood in the Fall '09 as a collaboration between CAPS and the Office of Disability Resources.  The group is open to any student who has registered with the Office of Disability Resources. Advocacy, Communication, and Transition (ACT) provides a safe place for students to openly discuss issues, share concerns, and receive support.

    This group meets Thursdays starting at 3:30 in the Office of Disability Resources.  If you are interested in ACT and/or have questions, please contact Lindsay Farrar 434.395.2391 trs: 711 or Dr. Maureen Walls-McKay at 434.395.2409.
