Group therapy as a means of unpacking baggage

by Wendy C. Smith

I have known several people who did group therapy because of drugs, depression or for a motivational boost. I’m not a “group” person and never thought I’d do anything like that—until I did. Even then, it wasn’t therapy; it was a workshop called the More to Life Weekend. I went because my marriage was in crisis and I needed help pulling myself together, and a couple friends recommended it.

A More To Life Weekend is coming to Knoxville on Feb. 10-12, and a free preview night is offered at the Center on Coleman Road on Tuesday, Jan. 31 at 7 p.m. Please call 584-3553 for more information.
