We’ve already taken a look at attorneys, ex’s and children in the prior excerpts from this chapter—those who can try to control a person when going through a divorce, culled from Stacy D. Phillips’ book, Divorce: It’s All About Control—How To Win the Emotional, Psychological and Legal Wars. Now, in this second part of the six-part series on the different “types” in a divorcee’s close circle, we focus on the therapist and how he or she fits into the overall control scheme of things. More in depth reading on each of the six different “control types” can be found in Stacy D. Phillips’ book, Divorce: It’s All About Control—How To Win the Emotional, Psychological and Legal Wars. Phillips shares the following brief descriptions:
Since we are looking at types, I have also listed a few therapist styles to better help you decide where yours fits in, and more importantly, to have you identify who is in control in your counseling: you or your therapist! Here goes.
Now that you have had a glimpse of the attorney categories in a broad sense (and sometimes they overlap), see if you can identify into which category (or categories) your attorney falls. Know there is no right or wrong type in general, only a right or wrong type for you.
