group agreement guidelines
I agree to keep confidential of the names/identity of the group members and what is said in the group. I agree to keep confidential anything which occurs between or among group members. This includes sharing with a spouse or close friends. I understand that if I violate this confidentiality I could be dismissed from the group. I understand that there is an exception to this confidentiality when anyone expresses feeling or action that indicate he/she is a possible danger to self and others, past or present unreported child or elder abuse, the counselor has a professional obligation to take direct actions to report to the proper authorities.
I agree that I will attend every meeting unless an emergency arises. If an emergency should arise I will notify the group leader prior to the meeting to tell him or her that I will be unable to attend. I understand that the group leader will tell the group what has happened. I understand that if I have two unexcused absences, my continued group membership will be discussed.
If I am asked questions or asked to participate in an activity which makes me feel uncomfortable, I understand that I have the right to pass, that is, the right to refuse. I also understand that I will benefit from group the more I am able to take courage in sharing and participating.
I agree that I will never pressure other group members to participate in any discussion or activity. I will honor the time we have together and allow everyone a turn to share and give space. I will focus on my own experiences, thoughts and feelings. I will not criticize and judge others. No group member is ever humiliated, hazed, or abused in any way. I will not try to fix others and will only give feedback as long as it reflects my own experiences that start with, “I” and not with, “you.”
