It may be discussions around friendships: how to meet other people; stay on a topic of conversation; pay attention or express one's feelings or emotions. There may also be discussions around employment, how to apply for a job, perform well in an interview, or maintain employment. Discussions will be based on issues impacting their lives on a daily basis.
