  1. 1. Support Group Code of EthicsTo sustain a supportive atmosphere, all support group participants should adopt the following attitudesand behaviors:CONFIDENTIALITYWhat is said in the group remains in the group. Please be respectful of its importance.WE MUST NOT JUDGE ONE ANOTHERWe‟re here to listen and to share, but not to tell each other how to solve problems.BE CONSIDERATE OF OTHERS‟ FEELINGSFeelings are feelings, and are neither right nor wrong.SHARE THE FLOOREach group member must be permitted time to speak without interruption.KNOW YOUR ROLEA student coping with the illness or death of a loved one is not a therapist or counselor.GRIEF IS NOT A DISEASEDo not expect to be cured of grief.ATTEND EVERY MEETING THAT YOU CANDealing with your grief can be very difficult, but you will certainly benefit from participating in thesemeetings.AVOID GIVING ADVICEIf a group member poses a question, instead of giving advice, share ideas that helped you when youexperienced a similar situation.USE THE „I PASS” OPTION WHEN YOU DO NOT FEEL COMFORTABLE SHARINGIf you are not ready to participate in a particular discussion or activity when the conversation or activity isdirected toward you, simply say “I pass”.4 April 2011 version 1.0 Page | 1
