If you are raising a teen child you’re familiar with something like this, “I need to feel understood…I need you to hear me (BUT DON’T EXPECT ME TALK!)” My dear friends, Drs. Paul, and Nancy Aikin have co-developed a beautiful, rich program to help families with teens. It’s called, “Hold Me Tight, Let Me Go.” It features a series of facilitated conversations to help get past parent/caregiver blocks to hearing their kid. This helps teens open up and can sometime be all a family needs. In other cases it’s a great adjunct to family therapy where the goal is counseling for teens.
