OUR FRIENDSHIP CONTRACT
What we thought of the SNAP sessions!
‘It was fun to see from others point of view about each other.’
‘The SNAP group has really helped me to do a lot of things. The first one is to use ‘I’ not ‘You’ because you solve problems better. Also the SNAP group taught me how to open up to my friends and tell them how I feel.’
‘SNAP group work has helped me and my firends have ways to get along and to express our feelings, it has also made me more confident.’
‘I think SNAP has helped our friendship loads. It helped us to sort our problems out with out having a big falling out.’
‘I felt like it helped our group become better and more trustworthy. Also, we now all are honest and more of a group.’
