This project explored the challenges faced by homeless and food-insecure college students, including poor mental health and the reduced likelihood of academic achievement. This paper reviewed the literature to substantiate the effectiveness of cognitive behavior therapy and strengths-based cognitive behavior therapy, as well as of the importance of including the person-centered four core therapeutic conditions, when providing group counseling support for college students. The proposed strengths-based cognitive behavior therapy group is intended to increase the students’ resilience in the face of adversity, and to give access to resources, with the overall goal of enhancing their academic success. The details of the 9-month group were described, from the initial screening session to the summer follow-up meeting. Last, the limitations and implications of this homeless and food-insecure strengths-based cognitive behavior therapy group were discussed.
