The legion also allows a person to develop new ways of relating to people by altering their perception and view towards themselves, society, and the world. Group therapy sessions give individuals an opportunity to learn and try out better behaviors and relationship with others.
During these sessions, members begin to realize that they are not alone and that there is hope and help. It is comforting to hear that other individuals have the same problem, or have already worked through a problem that deeply disturbs another legion member.
Next, another reason for the favorable outcome of group therapy is that every member feels safe and secure to care and become involved because of the climate of trust and understanding in the group. As the group members start to feel more comfortable, they are able to speak freely. Thus, this atmosphere allows them to express those feelings which are often difficult to express outside of a group. Consequently, legion members will begin to ask for the support they need, and they will be encouraged to be respectful but assertive at the same time.
