Interpersonal Process Group (IPG) - Therapy Group for Graduate Students

Thursday, April 18, 2024
3:00pm to 4:30pm
Add to Cal

Counseling center clinicians will be facilitating a weekly interpersonal process group exclusively for graduate students starting Spring 2024 Term. Unlike a class or a skills-based group, process groups allow the members to lead the discussion and receive feedback from each other while being guided by two therapists.  

  • This group can be valuable in helping you:  
    • Enhance communication effectiveness with others 
    • Strengthen your confidence in creating meaningful relationships 
    • Become more comfortable identifying your emotions  
    • Receive feedback about how you present and engage socially 
    • Practice interpersonal conflict resolution skills 
    • Have a safe & confidential space to process challenges 

When: Thursdays 3:00pm-4:30pm starting Spring Term 2024

Where: Student Wellness Services South, Conference Room (1239 Arden Rd.)

Who: Currently enrolled Caltech Graduate Students, brief screening meeting required.  

  • Those who can commit to attending group weekly for at least one academic term.  
  • Those who have previous or current experience in individual or group therapy.  

Please use the Student Health Portal to send a message to the Counseling Center Front Desk and ask to set up a screening appointment. You can also call the Counseling Center at (626) 395-8331 to schedule the meeting. 

  • Are you currently in individual therapy? 
    • If you are currently seeing a therapist at Caltech's Counseling Services, this group should take the place of your individual therapy this term. If you are in therapy with an outside provider, you may choose to continue that concurrently.  

Facilitators for IPG: 

  • Abigail Alido, PsyD (Caltech SWS Staff Clinician) 
  • Karyn Maczka, LMFT (Caltech SWS Staff Clinician)
