Individual counseling consists of working with the student's immediate or near future concerns. Individual counseling can encompass a wide variety of issues including personal, social, and academic concerns. Individual counseling is a one-on-one discussion between the counselor and the student.
Group counseling consists of multiple student's facing a similar concern. The group usually consists of 3-8 students with a counselor and sometimes a co-leader. The purpose of group counseling is for the group to work together and work toward a common goal. For example, a group may be formed for a group of students who are struggling with the divorce of their parents. The idea of group counseling is for students to realize they are not the only one experiencing these problems.
