Our Understanding Self and Others groups are intended for full-time UMW students who wish to have a space to talk about any issues that are on their minds. Often these concerns are related to personal or family stress that has been placed upon the student. Understanding Self and Others groups allow people to grow, learn about their interpersonal style, and try new skills in a safe space before taking them into our everyday world.
Our support groups are open to full-time and part-time enrolled UMW students.
