What's Your Conflict Style?

Tools And Resources For Therapists, By Therapists

I've been working with teens and families my entire career and I love sharing the tips, tricks and tools I've learned along the way with other therapists. I'm always eager to share new ideas and regularly provide in-service trainings on Family Systems. I hope you enjoy and find some use for these ideas.

NEW: How To Use Circular Questioning In Sessions

Circular Questioning is invaluable to me in a family therapy session, and I wish I'd learned some of the tips and tools in this video and online course a lot sooner. When you can introduce circular questioning to a session from the very first meeting, you can begin to understand some of the complex patterns that support and exacerbate the presenting problem.

So much more than just worksheets

Don't get me wrong, worksheets are amazing and there's some terrific ones out there. Our tools and interventions are not just worksheets, most come with an explanatory video which often includes psycho-education or a demonstration. The PDF's that you download are also packed with bonus content such as 'process questions' or tips and hints from our experience using them.
