You MUST respect that rule.

How would you feel if you discovered someone was telling your personal story without permission?

Keep the rule.

Peace,

Sorry! I misjudged you!!! forgive

But yes, you shouldn't talk about the work you're doing in therapy - it 'dissipates" the situation - complicated, but the gist of it is that you're not supposed to have another outlet for the issues being worked on in the room...you might feel better to share elsewhere, but in the long run, it isn't good for the work/change.

cool.
Love ya,
J

More than a year ago I also participated in group therapy, but there were no rules.

Everybody was accepted, but nothing had to stay within the group.
This was the reason why it was helpful, when someone felt bad, everybody listened, no judgements, no advice, no calculating what to do about it, and that gives a feeling of validation, because when one tries too hard to make one feel better it smells like something is not right about oneself. Of course nobody offended anybody, well that might have been the rule but since all participants were intelligent, nobody had to explicitly point it out.

Anyhow I left because it was too boring for me since the other partcipants had much greater problems than I had.

I don't want to talk you out of something, but this thread sounds like you have to focus on the group only, like as if this group was the only thing in life or even life itself, that is what I consider too radical.
It seems to me that this group might be something like "if you want to get better, you gotta stick with us or go to hell".
Again, I don't want to imply anything since I have no insight in what you are going to do, But if it is too strict don't take it too seriously (I mean the whole focus on the group, however I fear the rules have to be obeyed.)

the group i attended had the rules that what happens there is confidential, but no one can stop YOU talking about YOURSELF, just dont mention anyone elses problems,causes,etc :)

the rules wernt entirely too strict,they were just there to protect other peoples confidentiality.....i might be comfortable talking about my problems outside of a group but i think the rules are there for others that are alot more protective of there personal problems

My opinion on this is more liberal than most. As long as specific names and locations are not revealed, you're in the green.

i have to agree with 1a. i mean if stuf you're talking about helps you see things in a better way i'd be interested to hear about it. if you dont mention names or the group location well then its anonymous
