Trek – Week Seven

While in lectures and therapeutic group processes, our clients follow eight guidelines called Group Norms. They are good practice for any healthy communication.

  1. Limit distractions – no candy, gum, food, or drinks

  2. Actively participate – keep your chair and feet on the floor and face forward

  3. Be honest, authentic and real – focus on yourself and how you feel

  4. Respect others’ confidentiality – what’s talked about in group stays in the group

  5. Show consideration for others – don’t attack or demean character

  6. Raise your hand to speak or relate to others

  7. Promote open, vulnerable relationship – stand with hands by your side; remove hats and hoods

  8. Keep your conversations directed toward the entire group – no cross-talk
