Groups for Spring 2017

The ISU Counseling and Testing Service offer a variety of weekly groups in order to meet the various needs of the diverse students we serve. Groups are a powerful way to bring about meaningful change in the interpersonal, emotional, or personal challenges we face. We encourage students to utilize these services as they work toward overcoming difficulties and improving their lives. Contact the ISU Counseling & Testing Service at (208) 282-2130 to schedule an appointment with one of our counselors to discuss joining a group.
