Dare to Share – Sharing Your Struggles

About This Technique

This Room is useful for teens and young adults who feel they must hide their struggles. It provides useful techniques for clients to explore sharing their problems with others.

About This Room

Many therapists report that it is a turning point in therapy when clients begin to share the struggles they are having. This Room features videos from the “Dare to Share” program initiated by the Child Mind Institute. We’ve uploaded 4 videos from their site, and you can certainly upload different videos or ask clients to upload the ones they feel are most meaningful and relevant. The Room also includes a worksheet for clients to share their own struggles and a video uploader if they wish to make their own videos.
