Psychological Services Groups

About SDC's 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. 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 in every group. For more information please go to our FAQ page.

Groups involve 4 to 8 two-hour weekly sessions. If you are on a waiting list, you will be notified via email if you have been registered successfully.

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 SDC psychological groups are listed as "SDC Skills Groups" for the activity name, regardless of the actual group name. For more information or to add a Psychological Services group as an activity to your co-curricular record please click here.

Psychological Services Groups that are available for online registration are listed first. Some groups require an “internal referral” by a counsellor at SDC to make sure that it’s an appropriate fit for you. These groups are listed at the bottom of the page. Registration procedures for these groups will be provided in the description.

Please check back towards the end of the first month of the term for a complete list of groups that will be offered during the term.

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.
