  1. This is a safe place.  No judgmental crosstalk. No “shoulds” or “shaming.”
  2. No advice giving. Please share your success stories instead, using “I” statements. (no hidden advice – give example – Did you hire an attorney?”)   
  3. Do not engage in any debate/controversy over traditional/non-traditional treatment approaches.
