    Excellent points, with which I agree. I smile about two 'clingy' people needing to get a room. ;-) But the 'clingy' to which I refer in my comment isn't physical, but emotionally dependent, in which there's never enough reassurance to satisfy.

    We sat in circle as observers yesterday & experienced some intensive psychodynamic work by young people from dysfunctional families and with various challenges. It dealt directly with emotional independence. Interesting to have the Q & A here
