Group counseling occurs on a regular basis, guided by the pastoral counselors on staff here at NCBA. This time is utilized to allow students an opportunity to grapple with and resolve commonly faced issues. Students learn to constructively express their thoughts, ideas, and questions in an environment where each member is accepted and respected. Group counseling is not utilized to scrutinize individual members or to glorify past poor decisions.
Each evening, we also hold Evening Group Time. This special time of sharing is staff directed and designed to promote growth and unity in the dorm. Some of the topics that may be discussed include: Positive Peer Influence, Accountability, Personal Responsibility, Peer Reconciliation and Conflict Resolution.
