Group work creates connection. However, many times the group does not encourage maintaining these connections outside the therapy room. Nevertheless, the bonding of members can be intense and they usually want some way to hold on to their group experience once it is over.

In the lives of many patients, endings have not necessarily been positive experiences. They can stir up unresolved issues around loss and separation (Fehr, 2003). Termination rituals give patients a new, different, and corrective emotional experience that they can take out of the group room and into their lives (Shapiro, Peltz, & Bernadett-Shapiro, 1998).

This particular goodbye ritual provides patients a means to not only receive a new goodbye experience, but, also a tangible touchstone, if you will, with their group experience that they can literally carry with them for years to come.
