Is what I say in group confidential?

Group members sign a confidentiality agreement agreeing not to share information outside of the group. Members are asked to not form relationships with each other outside of the group.

The group facilitator writes progress notes which are protected under the same rigorous 
confidentiality policy as individual counseling records. Group notes include session dates, attendance, and general group themes. Your record is kept separate from other group members’ records and cannot be accessed by them.
