Due to an increasingly high demand for our groups and limited space, we have established a new cancellation policy.
To give other students an opportunity to participate in our groups, we now require that you cancel your registration at least 72 hours prior to the first group session if you cannot attend this group.
If you do not give adequate cancellation notice or if you fail to attend any sessions without cancelling on ONE occasion, you will be restricted from registering from groups online in the future. In the event you are restricted from online registration, you may register by connecting with the SDC reception office.
To avoid this, please cancel your registration 72 hours prior to the first group session if you cannot attend this group. Also, please do not sign up for groups which you cannot attend.
You can cancel your group registration on the "My Workshops" page using the link provided above.
Each group will incorporate a presentation of relevant material with discussion and practice of new strategies among group members.
It is a place for students to learn about new skills, increase self-awareness and share their experiences with others.
Groups are generally small ranging from 5-15 people. Group members are expected and encouraged to participate in group discussions.
We ask that students not sign up for more than one group per term. Space is limited. Registration for groups is on this website
Groups involve 4 to 8 two-hour weekly sessions. If you are on the waiting list please attend the first session in
order to determine if there will be room in the group.
All Psychological Services Groups are approved activities for the co-curricular record. However, please note that if you miss more than 2 group sessions in one term that this activity cannot be verified on your co-curricular record.
It is the responsibility of the student to add any desired activities to their own co-curricular record. For more information or to add Psychological Services Groups as an activity to your co-curricular record please click here.
All groups are free. To register for any group you would like to attend please click on the checkbox beside the title
of the presentation(s) and press the 'Register' button at the bottom of the table.
