New Support Group Offered for
Upper Year Students
The Counselling Centre
at Trent is pleased to offer a new support group this year called "Searching
for your Authentic Self."
Geared for students experiencing challenges in attaining independence,
self-confidence, assertiveness or comfort with themselves, the group will
be facilitated by Dr. Kevin Nugent, consulting psychiatrist with the Counselling
Centre. Dr. Nugent began working at Trent in the 2001/02 academic year
and is extending the amount of time he will spend at Trent in 2002/03.
The group will feature a supportive and therapeutic environment and will
help students learn more about themselves and a range of potential problematic
influences. The core task for each participant will be exploring their
family of origin experiences and the impact those experiences have had
on personal development. A range of other issues will be discussed, including
temperament and personality style, birth order, peer experiences, relationship
difficulties, assertiveness skills and religious/cultural background.
Upper-year students are invited to call the Counselling Centre at 748-1386
if they are interested in participating in the session or obtaining more
information. There will be a total of ten bi-weekly meetings, beginning
on Wednesday, October 2 and ending Wednesday, February 26, 2003.
