Commonalities are Important in Group Life

October 17, 2012

It’s hard to feel supported in any group where we feel we have little in common.  In seeking supportive group experiences, consider characteristics that are most important to you and seek them out.  Not every detail need be in perfect alignment, but enough needs to be common to be beneficial.  Perceived sameness makes information more credible.  Highly believable information may account  for the improvement in participants’ coping  efficacy.(Summers et al., 1989; Taylor et al., 1990; Thoits,  1986)
