> > A safe, successful Group for FORMER MEMBERS OF HIGH-DEMAND GROUPS AND RELATIONSHIPS (Religious, "New Age", Philosophical, etc.) is held every other Saturday in Marin, now in its 10th year. Participants include those born and/or raised in such groups espousing a "good"/ "bad" ideology with a leader who encourages greater degrees of dependency and conformity at the price of individual autonomy, development, and personal rights. Participants receive acknowledgement, gain insights, pursue individual goals, learn how others have negotiated challenging situations, with opportunities to heal from loss and trauma. Individual, Couple, and Family Sessions also available. Facilitated by Colleen Russell, Certified Group Psychotherapist . Contact: crussellmft@
