Some of the many benefits of being in a group setting include the INSTILLATION OF HOPE - usually by observing the improvement of others or knowing that other people have and can move forward; UNIVERSALITY - knowing that we are not alone in our difficulties; disconfirmation of our feelings of being alone in our suffering; SHARING INFORMATION - learning from each other; ALTRUISM - giving when cannot take; INTERPERSONAL LEARNING - gaining a better understanding of how others perceive us; a CATHARTIC release of buried emotion.
