My Support System

Linked here, "My Support System - Today and In the Future." Worksheet takes clients through their current and future, hoped-for support system in four areas: Family, Friends, Professionals, Others. Works well in dual diagnosis group--especially with clients with little-to-no current support (provided you normalize having little-to-no support).

Therapist may want to let each group member read answer, then prompt clients re how they might go about getting the wanted support--What are the steps? What are you looking for in a friend, sponsor, psychiatrist...? What are you looking to avoid?
