Stage 2 – acceptance (psychological needs are being met so we can move
forward/safe supportive environment)
Stage 3 – responsibility (begin to evaluate each other)
Stage 4 – work (evaluate concerns without fear of reprisal; look to solve
Problems; experiment with new behaviors)
Stage 5 – closing (pursue new behaviors outside the group)
