What Would a Therapist Recommend? Part 4

It’s a great “problem” to have as a therapist – there are countless resources available to us, but limited time to check them all out, whether it’s in the form of a book, podcast, or smartphone app. Avance Care Behavioral Health is a growing team of providers with a variety of specialties and interests, and as a team, we regularly ask each other for recommendations. It helps us to fill the gap between what we’ve read and what our clients are seeking! Whatever the format, these resources can provide information, empowerment, a sense of belonging and community, practice exercises, and so much more. Come back monthly for more resources on a variety of topics from a variety of therapists! View part 3 of our therapists’ recommendations here.
