My opinion, for what it's worth and many will think not much.

I'm a great believer in counseling, but I think the kind of school group you suggest would devolve/disintegrate into a big gripe session. I don't think "wallowing" (that's a word that some PTers don't like to be used) is helpful. Imagine a LONG, continuing vent board conversation.

Teaching is a tough job. There are many tough jobs. There are coping skills, but many people don't want to cope and make a major change in jobs or life. They'd rather stay stuck and wallow.
