I also provide coaching to the loved ones of individuals who struggle with addictions and other compulsive behaviors. Research has demonstrated that when treating addictions and other compulsive behaviors the best outcomes happen when the loved ones of the troubled individual modify the way that they interact with the individual. The method that I use has been shown to do three things: 1) Maintain the sanity of the concerned loved ones, 2) Increase the individual's motivation to get help, and 3) Reduce their addictive/compulsive behaviors. I have found that when helping concerned loved ones it is usually important to combine CRAFT training with ISTDP work, in order to facilitate the best outcomes.
