(EMAILWIRE.COM, April 28, 2012 ) Toronto, Ontario -- American culture also emphasizes the rugged individual and encourages people to deal with problems alone. Vantage Point Counseling Services helps people understand counseling and make informed decisions.
The Vantage Point website provides valuable information to those considering counseling and tackles some of the more serious issues surrounding counseling. Readers will learn about the power of the group in dealing with recovery. Many people think they are strong enough to deal with issues independently no matter what happens, but underestimate the power of a group to influence decisions.
What most people forget is that humans are social animals and working within a group dynamic can lead to different and often poor choices. Having a drink because everyone else is or deciding to join a group of friends at a party instead of sticking to a dedicated workout and diet plan are examples of the power of the group.
The first step in resisting the power of the group is to recognize that there is such power. Individuals who are aware that a group has power can decide not to be influenced by the group once they have made a decision to change their habits and behavior.
The second step involves creating a plan to deal with a group dynamic. Lack of a plan leaves one unprepared to deal with group situation and pressures that arise. A plan doesn’t guarantee success in resisting group pressure but it helps recognize when the group is destructive and helps the individual make adjustments.
Often in recovery, individuals to not take group social interaction into consideration and that can be a mistake. Dealing with group social pressure is just one of the topics Vantage Point Counseling Services can help individuals struggling with recovery deal with.
