CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- Darcie Davis-Gage, associate professor of counseling in the School of Applied Human Sciences at the University of Northern Iowa, will present "Women and Group Counseling: A Unique Connection," at noon, Monday, Dec. 5, as part of the Current Research on Women and Gender (CROW) Forum. The forum will be held at the Center for Multicultural Education, 109A Maucker Union.

Davis-Gage will discuss how women have been involved in both formal and informal groups for many years. There are numerous applications for groups and the possibilities are seemingly endless. This lecture will include a discussion about a qualitative research study that explored participants' experience in women-only group counseling. Guests will gain insight into what women experience in group counseling, how they make meaning of this experience and the benefits they have gained from their experience.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Barbara Cutter, director of the Women's and Gender Studies Program, at 319-273-5909 or barbara.cutter@uni.edu.
