But I Hate Groups

“But I hate groups…”
You may worry:
  • ...that you will have to take more social risks than you are comfortable with in group, but since it's a psycho-educational class rather than a process group, you will not be asked to reveal your most personal issues if you do not wish to, but rather we focus on didactic learning of behavioral skills.
  • ....group might be dominated by other members, but it is structured to provide each member opportunity to participate equally.
  • ...that you may be judged - group members usually have a lot in common and are gentle with each other, because they appreciate the same compassion in return.
  • ....about other things I have not mentioned, which is why I meet with every new member alone to answer any questions I can and go over the general format for group to provide clear expectations.
