In this paper, the authors describe the use of facilitated patient groups, in the management of women with faecal incontinence (FI). Two types of groups are discussed--a psychoeducational group and a psychotherapy group. Detailed descriptions of some of the themes which emerged in these groups are provided. The effectiveness of such groups is described, with regard to both psychological and physical functioning. Further investigation into the use of groups for this patient population is recommended
