Our Guidelines

In order to keep PSAW members feeling safe, and moving forward, we have created a list of guidelines. Before every eight week session, we ask members if they would like to add, or take out guidelines. Guidelines usually sound something like this:

  • Avoid giving advice (observations and personal experience are both okay)
  • Avoid giving medical suggestions
  • Put microphones on mute when someone else is talking
  • Use “I” statements
  • Be respectful of others, avoid criticizing or crosstalk
  • Share only as much as you feel comfortable.
  • Respect the group’s privacy (use headphone during calls if others are around, use discretion when discussing group material with non-members)
