Family Issues:

Using a variety of ways to assess cognitive and emotional style, Dr. Stephen Larsen has worked with helping couples, married couples with children, separated or divorced couples (often with children to raise in two housholds) and gay couples raising children.  His approach is based on years of psycholinguistic (the communication aspect) and family systems theory (the relational aspect).  He has worked with siblings who are estranged, and parents and children, similarly at loggerheads.  Several times he has been asked to intervene in men’s groups where communication has broken down.  (See also Partnership page.)
