Psychological Services Groups


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 and typically involve 4 to 8 two-hour weekly sessions.  Group members are expected and encouraged to participate in group discussions.  We ask that students not participate in more than one group per term. Space is limited in every group. For more information please go to our FAQ page.

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. All psychological groups are listed as "SE Wellness Groups" for the activity name, regardless of the actual group name.

TRANSformations October 21, 2019 to December 2, 2019 2:15 - 3:45 pm TBD (To Be Determined)
TRANSformations – A psychoeducation and support group for trans, non-binary, and gender questioning students

We know it can be both amazing and sometimes difficult to identify as trans or even be questioning your gender identity. Would you like to talk to other gender diverse students who may be experiencing similar things to you? Would you like to explore your identity in more detail, learn strategies to foster resilience in the face of gender dysphoria, and navigate obstacles that may be associated with coming out as your true self? Then please consider joining us at TRANSformations!

TRANSformations is a trans-positive psychoeducation and support group offered through Health and Wellness at Western University starting Monday October 21st. It will be a closed group (no drop-in) for current students who identify as trans/non-binary or who are questioning their gender identity. TRANSformations will be held in an accessible room in a low traffic area, with an accessible gender-neutral washroom close by.

TRANSformations will run on Mondays from 2:15-3:45pm for 6 weeks (October 21st to December 2nd - no group during reading week). Participants are asked to commit to attending all 6 sessions.
