Psychologists need as many tools as possible to help their patients. What works for one person or family may not work for another. Furthermore, it might be helpful to have activities patients can and will use on their own between counseling sessions. FamilyeJournal is a tool that can be used with a variety of patients and their families. It can be a valuable resource in the on-going care that a psychologist provides.
FamilyeJournal helps to address the Need for Connection theorized by Psychologist Abraham Maslow in his 1943 paper A Theory of Human Motivation and more commonly referred to as the Hierarchy of Needs. Studies show when people feel a "real" connection to others their behaviors improve and this is especially apparent in children and teenagers.
