Enforce the rules consistently. Follow through with consequences each time a rule is broken, and with every student who breaks one. If you're not prepared to do so, change the rule or discard it.

After discussing the rules and answering any questions, the students should sign their contracts and hand them in to the group leader. This is their pledge to adhere to the rules of the group.

Occasionally parents will refuse to let their child participate in a support group. If so, first explain the purpose and content of the support group to them, because they're often misinformed about the group.

Such strategies range from asking friends to lend a supportive ear, to identifying a relative's house where the student could stay when things get particularily abusive at home.
