What are These Resources? How Can They be Used?
Often during sessions with my clients, they are sent to various forms, books, videos and web sites as a sort of homework. Rather than spend their valuable time with me – and often reinforcing what is learned in therapy – clients look further afield than the session at hand.
Below you will find a listing of these resources. Clients past and present will find reminders in these lists. And casual site viewers can glean positive input to their own personal journeys.
These resources are alphabetized by topic. So, for example, if you want to learn more about Trauma, scroll down to T. To learn more about Internal Family Systems Therapy, go to I.
Yes, this is only a partial list, and an ever evolving list. If you want to learn more about topics not shown here, or just want to ask my opinion about any of these areas, just contact me with your questions. I’ll be glad to help
