Concerns about Group Counseling
Group counseling provides a safe, confidential environment where you can learn about yourself and others. However, it is natural to have some concerns about entering into group counseling. It may be helpful to know that groups are led by one or two mental health professionals, such as licensed psychologists, clinical social workers, or doctoral fellows/doctoral interns, and that group facilitators are committed to maintaining confidentiality. What's said in group, stays in group.
Group facilitators are committed to maintaining confidentiality. In order to create safety and trust conducive for positive change and growth, group members will be asked to keep the names and identities of other group members as well as the materials discussed in group confidential. An agreement of confidentiality is required of everyone attending the group. We also ask that group members do not socialize outside of the group until the group has concluded. If you see a friend or classmate in a group, it is most helpful if you immediately tell your facilitators about your relationship with that individual in order to address this concern as soon as possible. Group facilitators cannot guarantee that other group members will adhere to the confidentiality principle practiced by group facilitators.
