Libro DBT Coach, Corrine Stoewsand, families, individuals, difficult relationships, emotional balance, Geniune Validation, Book


I have been working with families of persons who are emotionally impulsive and conflictive or avoidant. I have helped over a thousand family members learn to respond skillfully and improve communication and trust between them and their loved one. I have also helped many families to get their loved one engaged in effective therapy after months or years of resistance.
