“Be your own natural self.” – Milton H. Erickson, MD
When I work with groups the most important thing is to track what is happening consciously and unconsciously in the group by pacing and leading the group energy as it (just like individuals) shifts from one consciousness state to another. I have to establish a context of safety by creating clear boundaries and an atmosphere of acceptance, respect, good humor and authenticity.
It is important that each group member feels safe enough to take some risks in speaking fully and perhaps feeling vulnerable. It is equally important that each group member feels supported and really “heard” so that the group energy is a context for individual personal growth.
