We have some drop-in groups running this term that do not require registration, these groups can be utilized on a weekly or as needed basis. These are open groups for Temple students to come together to discuss thoughts, feelings, and struggles, and to receive feedback and support from others. While these are not therapy groups, they are run by TCS counselors and are a supportive space.
COVID Support Group
This group is open to any Temple students who are finding it difficult to cope with issues related to COVID-19. Participants will connect in a safe and supportive space where they can explore their COVID-related struggles with each other.
When: Mondays at 1 pm

International Student Support Group
This group is a safe and supportive space for international students to share their stories and explore their challenges, stressors, and successes with one another.
As part of the support group over the next 6 weeks we plan to create 2 topics of discussion in an environment to help foster community discussion. Our first topic is the difficulty many students are facing with loneliness. Over the course of 3 weeks we will explore how you may be facing loneliness during your time as a Temple student in an era of COVID pandemic. Over the next 3 weeks we will discuss the experience of having online classes experience and challenges that come with this experience.
As being part of the group it helps to have individuals commit to coming for 3 week periods. And while we know that it may not always be the case that people can commit to this, we find that it will ultimately help in your experience. If you can come for 1 session that is great and you are all welcomed! If you can come for all 3 even better!. We look forward to meeting with all of you in the near future.
