One of the objectives with the group is that it’s a “feel good” group. We concentrate on turning negatives into positive stuff in a constructive but informal and often fun way. It’s about the old question: When a glass is filled half way, do you describe it as half full or half empty? In our group we’ll go for the half full option! Not that there’s not space for the discussion of negative feelings and experiences in the group. How can we really experience the positives if we do not know & explore the negatives?
