SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., Oct. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Sovereign Health, a leading national provider of behavioral health treatment services, is pleased to announce the launch of a new article that's now live on www.psychologytoday.com: "How to Navigate a Toxic Relationship." This second article of the "Toxic Relationship" series, written and edited by Ralph Ryback, M.D., Kristen Fuller, M.D., and Susan Logan-McCracken, M.P.W., shares how navigating toxic relationships is a process that requires help from supportive friends, family and professionals.
As this editorial notes, a toxic relationship can consume a vast amount of mental and emotional space in a person's life and can cause immeasurable pain. The article states five tips that can help someone chart a course and build better bonds:
- People in toxic relationships need to seek help.
- It is important to express one's feelings to the person when in a toxic relationship.
- Decide whether the relationship is worth fighting for or not.
- Be around positivity and practice self-care.
- Stick to the decision that has been made.
This new article is part of the "Toxic Relationship" series, following a recent Sovereign Health editorial, "Detox Your Relationships: Helpful hints for dealing with a toxic person." This article shares how toxic people can leave long-lasting effects on others.
"Rebuilding and repairing damaged relationships is one of the most important elements in someone's recovery, but also important in overall health," said Rachael Mattice, Managing Editor for Sovereign Health. "Inspired by our recent content toolkit development focused on relationships in recovery, we felt it necessary to offer readers an additional layer of education on healthy social connections."
