The past month in group therapy we have spent discussing the differences between being a victim and a survivor. We have been talking about how each of us have had bad things happen to us, but have we viewed it as a survivor or as a victim? What perspective will bring us the most happiness in our lives?
We recently went on a hike on the "C" Trail. We hiked down the trail. We stopped from time to time to discuss perspectives, the big picture and gave the youth time to journal their own thoughts. We also spent time afterwards in group discussing what we had learned and some youth gained some great insight into themselves.
It was also a great day to see the leaves changing and get some great pictures.
