Helping our patients hold thoughts and feelings more lightly in order to resolve conflict
Do you see a vase or two faces?
Either way can be “right” isn’t it?
Having the ability to hold onto thoughts and feelings more lightly is a very important skill in conflict resolution and life in general.

Practicing mindfulness is to hold onto these more lightly for better psychological flexibility.
