Meeting Format

DBSA online support groups follow the same format as most DBSA in-person support groups. The format is as follows:
  • Gathering time - The group assembles.

  • Welcome - The facilitator brings the group together and provides focus.

  • Review what will happen at the meeting and group guidelines - Participants are asked to look over the guidelines at every meeting.

  • Check-in - Participants briefly let the group know how they are feeling and what they would like to discuss during the meeting.

  • Discussion - This is the heart of a DBSA group. Often the discussion will be based on common concerns or themes that came up during the check-in time.

  • Closing - The facilitator brings closure to the session.
