Let it Out – facilitated discussion groups

We will pilot two types of closed, facilitated discussion groups for adults:

  1. For those who felt Targeted in the past by a sibling or diminished in the present.
  2. For those who were Aggressive in the past and/or currently dismissive of a sibling, and who wish to change set patterns.
