We listen, explore options & express feelings.
We do not prescribe, diagnose, judge or give advice. We suggest based on our own experience
We recognize the need for offering our help to others in support groups because the best way to take your mind off of your own issues is to help others with theirs.
Confidentiality: We know what we share is confidential & that we have the right to remain anonymous if we choose
Member Responsibility: We each share responsibility for making the group work
Courtesy-We each have the opportunity for equal airtime or the right to remain silent
We encourage members to share their strengths, skills, insights, successes (however small) and their hopes.
Commitment: we commit to using our words to heal, not harm. To build up, not tear down, to bring hope & not hurt
We will be loyal & loving, remembering that even if we disagree we still fight on the same side-never against each other.
We offer our words & stories as a powerful weapon to fight for each other on the side of all that is good, right, healthy and true.
