What have you got to lose?

A special moment in my support groups comes when a member graduates and imparts their "words of wisdom" to the rest of the group. As a facilitator it is fascinating to contrast the person speaking with the person I met when they entered the group six months prior. The contrast can be striking because most of the individuals I work with are court-ordered to attend so there can be quite a bit of resistance to participation when I first meet them. (Not a criticism of the group members-it is just human nature to resist something if you don't have a choice in the matter.)
