Everyone has a special barometer to gauge shifts and swings in the social trends which comprise the so-called American consciousness. Our personal barometer is our shared marriage and family private practice. Our clients’ hurts and joys often reflect how changing social expectations and cultural conditioning mesh with personal goals and ambitions. Thus, as psychotherapists, we have a unique vantage point from which to be sensitive to the first indications of societal shifts before they become full-fledged social movements.
