I will interact honestly with other group members, respecting their feelings and thoughts.
I will retain the group’s confidentiality by not revealing what is said in the group to anyone outside the group (except with my therapist if I am in individual therapy). I may talk to others outside the group about my general experience in the group, as long as this in no way jeopardizes the confidentiality of any group member.
I will attend each weekly meeting, arriving on time and remaining for the entire call. In those cases where this is not possible (e.g., emergencies, vacation, unavoidable circumstances) I will notify the group ahead of time.
Derogatory phrases based on race, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, religious or political beliefs, disabilities, ethnicity nationality, etc will not be tolerated.
This space is to be one of hope, encouragement, and connection. It will not be used as a time for venting emotional distress or complaining about partners. If more individualized attention is needed I will contact my therapist or coach.
I will respect the time of those in the group and allow time for all participants to engage and share as desired.
I will practice mindful listening by being present with those that are speaking.
I will attend to and speak only of my own experiences and responses rather than assuming the experiences of others.
