In my limited experience with groups, one problem that I saw was that the same people tended to want to talk all the time. Those of us who were more shy ended up doing a lot of listening. Which is ok, I suppose, but I would have felt more comfortable if the therapists in charge had been a little more involved in making sure everyone had a chance to talk. There were things I wanted to talk about, too, but I had trouble asserting my needs in a group setting. I suppose that was part of the point of being in a group - to work on that. But instead, I just got frustrated and eventually quit, feeling like a failure because I "wasn't the right kind of person to be in a group." You might want to check out her philosophy about managing different personalities and needs within the group.

good luck!
