Other Ways Laura Can Help
The current mental health crisis has made it very difficult for couples to find expert relationship advice. Not everyone can access (or needs) private couples therapy with a relational psychology specialist.
In an effort to embrace equity and inclusion, Ms. Silverstein offers a vast array of free and affordable services. Here is a list of resources for couples
- Empathy Made Easy (Free Video series)
- Relationship Toolkit (Worksheets for couples)
- Relationship Academy (YouTube Channel)
- Quizzes for Couples (Fun and informative relationship assessment tests)
- Love Is an Action Verb DIY Self-Help Series (Includes a book to read on your own and a couples therapy workbook to do together)
- Blog (Action-oriented articles for couples)
If you are a mental health practitioner, she offers 1:1 business consultation.
Silverstein started her journey as a helping professional early, having earned her Bachelor’s in Social Work from Skidmore College, and volunteering at a social service agency in Fiji immediately after college. She earned her Master of Social Work from University of Connecticut and has been licensed in Pennsylvania since 1998.
She completed a post-graduate externship at America’s leading family therapy training facility, the Philadelphia Child Guidance Training Center, founded by Dr. Salvadore Minuchin.
She went on to study under Drs. John and Julie Gottman, undisputed leaders in the field of relationship research and couples therapy, whose ground-breaking research enables them to predict divorce with 90% accuracy.
Ms Silverstein completed the highest level of clinical training available at the Gottman Institute, the certification practicum requiring peer-reviewed video-tape assessment. She is also a certified Gottman Method Trainer.
This expertise informs her education and clinical approach.
While her success owes much to advanced education and training from the masters in the field, even more important is her ability to genuinely connect with her students and clients with her warm approachable style.
Our very own Laura Silverstein has written her first book!
