Some of us may have had one best friend throughout our lives—that neighbor or first-grade friend who has stayed with us for decades. Some of us, though, may have had a series of best friends—one in elementary school, one in secondary school, one in college, one in more recent years. And some of us may have added best friends along the way, so that we now have “a group of best friends.” We will begin this workshop by talking about some of our best friends and what role(s) they have played in our lives. After that, we will each write about a best friend.
