Group Guidelines

To create a safe environment for sharing during group we follow these group guidelines:

  1. We do not give advice.
  2. We do not interrupt.
  3. We do not engage in cross talk.
  4. We share; we do not preach.
  5. We have the option to pass.*
  6. We understand that there are no failures, only opportunities.
  7. We do not identify individuals when sharing our experiences.
  8. We keep confidential all experiences shared within the group.
  9. We start and end meetings promptly
  10. We do not smoke, eat, or drink (except water) during meetings.
* You are encouraged to share freely, and your freedom to “pass” is respected without judgment. We encourage personal safety. It is perfectly fine to attend your first few groups to listen and learn from the experience.
