At the UF Counseling & Wellness Center we know that the experience of graduate students is a unique one so we make sure that in addition to our typical counseling services, drop-in workshops, and variety of group counseling sessions we have resources specifically for UF’s graduate student population.
- Understanding Self & Others: Graduate Student Support Group – This is a general group therapy session, but specifically for those in the graduate program. Release feelings about distressing experiences, develop insights about interpersonal patterns through support and feedback, create connections, and build trust in yourself and others.
- Understanding Self & Others: Black Grads – This group is specifically for black graduate students. Release feelings about distressing experiences, develop insights about interpersonal patterns through support and feedback, create connections, and build trust in yourself and others.
- Graduate Student Support Group – During the unique experience of graduate school, receive support to survive and flourish, and have a place to discuss your stresses and joys.
To join either of these groups please call 352-392-1575 and mention that you are interested in joining.

While there aren’t currently any workshops specific for graduate students here are some workshops we think graduate students might be interested in attending. Workshops do not need a consultation appointment, nor do you need to be a CWC client.
- Getting Tasks Done – This 4-module workshop will focus on learning skills for time management and productivity using experiential activities and discussion.
- Overcoming Procrastination – The purpose of the workshop is to gain a deeper understanding of procrastination and to learn strategies to combat it.
- Stress Management Through Mindfulness and Meditation – Each week, our workshop will focus on a different aspect of stress management with a view towards promoting wellness.
- Burnout Drop In Space – This drop-in space will provide a place for participants to connect with others, learn coping strategies to address the immediate effects of burnout, and critically explore the role that school/work places play in creating conditions for burnout.
