Abstract The purpose of this paper is to show how ethics play a significant role in the success of group therapy. Group therapy sessions can be very beneficial and can also have different results than individual therapy due to the dynamics of what goes on in a group including things like exercises.

In the emerging marketplace society, where social mobility and capitalistic competition destroyed aristocratic forms of social cohesion, moral ideas derived from common sense philosophy helped to assure individuals and communities that they still lived in a morally accountable universe. As Thomas Augst in particular has shown, in the lyceums and lecture halls, debate societies and libraries where people spent their leisure hours, common sense moral philosophy helped to shape an emerging cultural pedagogy about the ethical and spiritual care of the self.
