Confidentiality in Group Counseling

Group sessions are confidential. Every member of each therapy group at the Counseling Clinic is required to sign an agreement to adhere to the rules of confidentiality. In signing this agreement, group members make a personal pledge that nothing occurring in the group, including names of other group members, will be shared with anyone outside of the group. These rules are critical to the development of a safe, respectful, and trusting atmosphere which allows individuals to openly share their feelings.
