7 benefits of individual reflection, .... in a group


A prerequisite: create a “space of trust”

the guide is the guarantor of a framework where confidentiality and respect in exchanges are ensured. In this space, the group will exchange, share, think, feel, ... and allow everyone to express themselves. So in this space, we were able to observe the following 7 benefits: 1. Open your perspective

The perception of the paths and progress of others members of the group allow you to open your perspectives.

Different people are at stages different ways of thinking about their transitions. Sharing stages already crossed by some allow put things into perspective and say that current questions, doubts are a normal part of the path. 2. Universality

In a group, due to sharing by others people of their vision, their doubts, their questions, the person will discover what they are experiencing is not unique. That others live more or less in similar feelings, whatever they may be.

This discovery of universality is in particular a powerful lever to walk together in confidence. 3. Receive information about yourself

Each participant receives objective “feedback” from the

share of accompanying persons, and other participants who

don't know him. He will explore ways to approach things or themes not imagined. All an overlooked space where new points of view can then appear.

4. Female/male point of view

In addition to receiving information, the diversity of

groups provide the possibility of having the point of view of

people of the opposite sex.

Who can shed light on the tensions, the differences, the confrontations that appear in the participants' own couple, during transitions.

5. Experimenting with ways of relating

Each participant is encouraged to share, to express themselves, to listening, asserting yourself, giving feedback in pairs, or in a group complete security. This allows him to experiment with other modes relationship with others. 6. Addressing existential questions

Trust within the group makes it possible to address and discuss more existential questions which are sometimes avoided and yet essential. 7. Feel your own conviction

Throughout the walk and discussions, the participant is led to

express out loud, to verbalize “the story he is telling himself”. The group is then a sounding board for its history. The person speaks to himself through others. It is a powerful way to experiment, measure, enrich one's own conviction in one's history. Marc & Francois Thouret Article based on our experience and on the book by Irvin Yalom, psychologist who has written on the theory and practice of groups.
