We know what you’re thinking. Groups? Seriously?
Before you condemn the idea of joining a group at CPG, consider some things. We live in a technological age that is doing its best to disconnect us from one another, and many students talk about feeling alone. Others talk about their worries that everyone else seems happy and put-together but they feel like something isn’t right when it comes to themselves. Groups are the perfect way for all of us to learn how to authentically connect with one another, and to experience what it is like to show your real self and see that others will accept and care for you anyway. That connection — showing your real self — is the key factor of groups.
Many students question, “If I say something in a group, will my stuff get blabbed out to the rest of campus?” In our years at CPG doing groups, this has never been an issue — not once. Confidentiality is a rule for all groups, and group members respect one another and hold to that promise. So, seriously, take a chance. We are offering a large number of groups this year because we feel so strongly about them. Check them out.
