Ending Ritual

In all situations in which a group process has been established, the existentially imperfect process of termination may be one of the most important stages of an ethical group process, requiring considerable therapist skill (Mangione, L., Forti, R. & Iacuzzi, C.M. 2007; AGPA, 2007). To avoid colluding with avoidance of the feelings stirred up by ending in clients, and therapists, thoughtfully timed rituals may be useful.

Guided imagery, a form of trance, can vivify the actuality of ending prior to the event. Imagery, including directive suggestion, supports a more powerful group termination process. Functions such as prescribing the resistance, working through as yet unarticulated issues, and/or expression of gratitude and progress or their opposites, some of which might not have otherwise come to awareness sufficiently to be dealt within the group, can be accessed in this and the remaining sessions.
