How can I get the most out of group?
Some questions for journaling, discussing with someone you trust, or thinking through on a walk, in a bubble bath, or while sitting somewhere peaceful outside…
•What makes it hard for me to speak up in group? Do I feel like I need to be asked a question directly and individually? If so, why? What will allow me to share freely and ask questions of others during our short time together?
•When have I been the most open with the group about thoughts and feelings I have in response to what is being discussed? What allowed me to be more open then?
•What is something specific that I could ask for more of in group, that might benefit my growth?
•What is something specific that I could ask for less of in group, that might benefit my growth?
•Why might keeping my reactions to myself feel safer than responding to others in the moment?
•Why might keeping my reactions to myself be problematic?
