Query: I’d like to hear from therapists and communication experts about some rules they think couples should adopt that make communication easier. While all of these rules won’t work for every couple, the point of the story is to make couples lay bare the rules of communication they follow and to offer some that therapists find useful. For instance: No raised voices. Ask at least three follow-up questions. Wait three seconds to make sure the other person has finished speaking. I am hoping to get between 8-10 rules, and each rule should have an explanation as to why it’s useful.

  • Deadline: 7:00 PM EST – 31 July

Query: I’m looking for licensed therapists to share strategies for reviving healthy habits after summer break. This is a lot of questions, and please just answer any that you feel called to! Here are my questions:

  1. What unhealthy habits do people sometimes adopt over the summer break (mental, emotional, physical), and what may they be looking to change as they move into the fall season?
  2. How can people adopt a positive attitude about making changes in themselves, without resorting to toxic positivity? What are some healthy ways to reframe negative thoughts and practice self-compassion?
  3. What are some ways that people can nurture their mental and emotional well-being, including reducing stress, gaining resilience, etc? Any practical tips?
  4. How can people reestablish healthy physical habits, like getting enough sleep, eating well, and exercising? How to set realistic goals that you can actually attain?
  5. Can you offer tips for coming up with healthy daily routines and how to manage your time well?
  6. How do you stay motivated to lead a healthy lifestyle for a long duration? So many people start healthy routines and then go back to less healthy ones. How do you create long-term habits?

Requirements: Licensed therapists. I can only accept original quotes written by experts–not assistants or AI bots.

Query: Hi everyone. This is Matt Christensen, contributing writer for Fatherly. Fatherly is one of the most popular and successful parenting websites in the world, reaching more than 15 million unique readers each month. I’m currently looking to get in touch with therapists who can provide advice for an article, tentatively titled: The Most Helpful Thing To Do When You’re Frustrated With Your Spouse. What specific and actionable tips can you, as an expert, offer to couples in this situation? What are some techniques, or things to do/say to help avoid the potential for arguments and resentments resulting from frustration? The more serviceable the tips, the better.

Here is a similar article I did recently to give you an idea of how responses will be formatted. If your quote is used, you will of course be cited and we’ll be happy to promote your practice, group, or whatever outlet you’d like represented.

Requirements: Looking for therapists to explain the most helpful thing to say/do when you’re frustrated with your spouse. Please email with responses, and be sure to include a link to how you’d prefer to be cited. Thank you!
