Individuals are working on similar issues which could include enhancing relationship skills, work/life balance, deepening their understanding of themselves, among many. Members are encouraged to give feedback to others. Feedback includes expressing your own feelings about what someone says or does. Interaction among members is highly encouraged and provides members with opportunities to try out new ways of behaving; it also provides members with opportunities for learning about the way they interact with others. It is a safe environment in which members work to establish a level of trust that allows them to talk personally and honestly. Group members make a commitment to the group and are instructed that the content of the group sessions are confidential. It is not appropriate for group members to disclose events of the group to an outside person.
