Often the personal issues that bring us to counseling (e.g., stress, anxiety, or depression) have more to do with how we relate to others than we think. Healthy Connections Group will help members explore the relationship between their interpersonal style and their emotional well-being. Members will be encouraged to experiment with new behaviors, which can foster more meaningful connections with others and enhance emotional health.
Students need to already be a client of CAPS or have been referred to group after intake appointment.

Interpersonal process-oriented therapy where members explore eating disorder struggles while building awareness of relationship with self, others and world around them. Members are encouraged to explore the function of their eating disorder, triggers, factors that maintain their eating disorder, barriers to recovery, and alternative ways of coping. Discussion does not focus on numbers (weight, frequency of behaviors, calories, duration of exercise) or when, where, and how members engage in eating disorder behaviors.
Emerging themes in group are practicing ways to label and stay with emotions, identify and strengthen one’s healthy strong voice, disempower one’s eating disorder voice, and practice being curious, gentle and compassionate with self and others.
This group is not a substitute for IOP, Partial, or Residential services.
Students need to already be a client of CAPS or have completed the CAPS Now appointment before starting group. Clients in these special population groups need to be in individual counseling services, either at CAPS or with a community provider, during the time period they are attending the group.
