What Are Therapy Groups?

The Counseling Center and the Gender and Sexuality Center are partnering up to conduct closed, virtual therapy groups for UIC students. Currently we offer two therapy groups: LGBTQ and TGNC. If you are a current UIC student and identify within these two groups, please contact GSC Director JT Turner at jt1@uic.edu to learn more.
