To give you an idea of the practical tools Focus on the Family offers, you can begin serving clients better with two critical publications as FREE downloads: Alive to Thrive, our suicide prevention curriculum, and Responding to an Affair, which is focused on recovering from extramarital affairs. These are just two examples of the many practical resources you’ll have at your disposal as a member of Focus on the Family’s Christian Counselors Network.

Recovering from an Affair

Over the years we’ve counseled hundreds of couples who are grappling with the aftermath of marital infidelity. While the details may vary, the pain is very real in every situation. This resource includes input from numerous marriage and family therapists who have accumulated years of counseling experience with couples through Focus on the Family’s counseling service and Hope Restored marriage intensives.

Alive to Thrive

Alive to Thrive is not the type of suicide prevention resource that simply offers the warning signs or helps you deal with the aftermath of a teen’s death by suicide. Alive to Thrive takes a truly preventative approach. We discuss issues that we know can lead to suicide, and we teach you how to address them long before your child might ever entertain thoughts of ending his or her life.
