What happens when I log into a group?
People are welcomed by Bodywhys facilitators. The facilitators will post the ground rules/guidelines for the group. Confidentiality and respect are emphasised.
In the online group, people talk by typing in a text box at the bottom of the screen. A list of users who are logged on is shown on the left hand side.
The group generally determines what is discussed at each session. The facilitators do not have a set agenda. People attending are under no obligation to speak during a session. The facilitators ensure the space is safe for all attending. If you feel uncomfortable or upset, do make sure to talk this through before leaving the session.
You do not have to ‘speak’ if you don’t feel ready. It is OK to simply observe.
There is no pressure to talk until you feel ready.
Sometimes people are a little nervous about what the groups might be like, we have created this short video
on how the groups work (sound is not required).
