Faith Distress Support Group

Workshop/Training

This group is an opportunity for students to get together in a safe environment, learn from, and support each other. Each week, a discussion will be held of pertinent issues related to faith that create stress (e.g. having doubts or internal conflict finding spirituality, faith transitions, finding a place of belonging, talking to those of different faiths, etc.). Topics are motivated by participants each week.
The group is co-facilitated by Monique Frazier, a psychologist from USU Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) and Bonnie Glass-Coffin, Anthropology professor and Director of the Interfaith Leadership Certificate Program.

Conversations with Clergy

Cultural/Diversity

Because confidential conversations about matters of faith are best accommodated by clergy who have been trained to minister to your specific spiritual needs, beginning in early February, 2019, local clergy members from various denominations and faith-traditions will be available from 3:00-5:00 pm in Old Main 243 for one-on-one conversations with interested students. This is a pilot project, sponsored by the USU Interfaith Initiative, so we are intentionally beginning small. If there is sufficient demand, this program will expand to include clergy of other faith traditions in the future. We encourage you to drop by and have a conversation with these well-trained clergy members about anything that is on your heart or mind. For information on names and affiliations of clergy who will be available on any given Tuesday afternoon, please visit the Interfaith Initiative website at http://interfaith.usu.edu/interfaith_support_services.
