In critically ill patients the best aid to recovery is strong social support. Other people are part of our support system.

We will talk about the social net, and our responsibility to utilize it when needed. Laughter, intimacy and empathy are all experiences that help foster healing and resilience. Resilience means that we have the ability to weather difficult circumstances.

You may need to work on skills in developing and maintaining healthy relationships, or perhaps just learn how to better draw upon the supports that are already present in your life. We will explore these avenues in our work together.
