LGBTQIA Support/Discussion Group 

The group meets every Monday at 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 pm during Fall and Spring Semesters in the Counseling and Psychological Services Center, Student Services Building, room 280. The first meeting of group for Fall 2019 will be on Monday September 9th. 

Purpose of the Group

This group is an opportunity for WSU LGBTQA students to gather, learn from each other, and share support. Each group will center around pertinent topics of interest to participants, likely including coming out, self-acceptance, family issues, and dating/relationship challenges.

This group is co-facilitated by Dr. Jaime Brass of the Counseling and Psychological Services Center and Jayson Stokes, Coordinator of the LGBT Resource Center.

Any interested WSU student is welcome to attend. Students can feel free to attend all of the weekly meetings or drop in whenever they can make it. Lunch will be provided to participants courtesy of the WSU LGBT Resource Center.

Expectations of Group Members

  1. In order for everyone to express opinions freely, we expect everyone to honor confidentiality. That is, we ask you not to discuss who attended the meeting and what other people said in the meeting with anyone outside of the group. We cannot legally guarantee confidentiality, but it is highly encouraged.
  2. We expect all group participants to be respectful. This means arriving on time, taking turns talking, and being open to different perspectives.
  3. This group is not a counseling or therapy group. It is a place where we can learn from each other and discuss issues of concern. If you are interested in receiving individual or group therapy to address personal concerns, speak with the facilitator from the WSU Counseling and Psychological Services Center to find out how to initiate these services.
  4. If the group is not meeting your needs or expectations, if there are situations in which you don’t feel comfortable, or if you have ideas on how to improve the group, the facilitators will be available briefly after each meeting and welcome your feedback.
