    When Parents Are Not Supportive

    When Parents Are Not Supportive

    Natasha asks how to work with kids when their parents are not supportive.  This is a huge question and I contribute my initial thoughts.  I work with kids from pretty extreme situations where "not supportive" can be drastic.

Michelle,CMT ,

Love the 10-20 minutes of wisdom.

Perfectly timed, digestible information without overloading the brain!!!

AmyElizabeth0203 ,

Justin. Consider a silent retreat.

This sounds like a bad script written to showcase how men run over women when having a conversation. The fact that he’s a therapist but can’t let Mercedes finish a thought without interrupting is telling.

Billy.Morris ,

I found it very helpful and digestible

Digestible and helpful for non-academic folks.

Helped me grasp PVT more deeply
