T-Group Reflection two: Final Thoughts Looking back at the at the eleven sessions we had this semester I think I learned a lot from my fellow group members and facilitator. I went into T-group skeptical and not willing to talk about myself with others. After a few sessions, I still felt unwilling, but I felt like as a group we were growing and bonding together. Now that T-group is over I feel a little sad, it was nice being able to distract myself from my own problems and struggles for at least an hour and fifteen minutes a week.
