Although these folks sound rather beaten down, you never know what kinds of emotions they'll be going through. Most of them will probably be sad and tired, but some may well be very angry, and may see any opportunity to grab someone's arm as a chance to struggle and apply their power to set things "right", which could end up with some broken arms.

I always like to start out by getting them relaxed and feeling physically unburdened and emotionally positive.

Hope you have a good workshop.
