The process helps in better understanding of self with deeper insight, better development of skills, exploration of more options better self treatment as well as support of others which makes it easier for people to develop stronger personalities.

When group members share their feelings and experiences to a supportive audience, they can obtain relief from chronic feelings of shame and guilt.
