Because trust is a critical component of group process the first few sessions of are usually spent on establishing safety and on identify growth goals among the group members. It is this safety and trust that allows group members to openly and authentically work towards achieving their growth goals. The safety and trust in the group also allows for the group members to offer insight to one another as well as encouragement towards completion of growth goals.
The power of the Connected Woman is in giving and receiving feedback among the group members, encouraging one another to succeed, and in supporting each members growth. Group members are responsible to bring up topics or issues they want to address. Group members are also encouraged to give support and feedback to one another.

Along with group members the therapist/facilitator may serve as a model for effective communication, healthy conflict resolution skills, and assist in promoting personal growth.
