Karen,

Bubba was absolutely wrong.

Let's talk about this group for a minute. Where were all the rest of the people? What are the rules of the group? Groups I have been in required a commitment on my part for a particular period of time - I was required to be there (if I didn't come I still had to pay). Groups only work if there is continuity. Second, I have never been in a process group (as opposed to a skills training group) where new members have showed up unannounced. Usually, the therapist would mention 2 or 3 weeks ahead of time that they were talking with a potential new member - and we had a chance to prepare ourselves for someone new coming in.

I hate to say it, Karen, but these are further examples of inexperience, and how his inexperience can hurt you.

I can't believe that he backed out on your individual appointment. (I'm trying to shut my mouth, but it is still hanging open in amazement)

I think that you would make really good use of therapy with an experienced therapist. I hope that you will give yourself that opportunity.

P.S. a teenager leaving home will often make her parents so mad - because it is easier to leave when you are both angry. Maybe this is your opportunity.
