Therapy worksheets and toolkits
Free essential resources for mental health professionals
Therapy worksheets can be a useful tool for therapists looking to help their clients process and work through various emotions. These resources offer a structured way for clients to identify and articulate their feelings, which can be particularly helpful for those who struggle with communication or self-awareness. Whether it’s a worksheet that prompts clients to explore their inner critic or one that encourages them to practice gratitude, these tools can be a valuable addition to any therapist’s toolkit.
When working with narcissistic families, there are many ways to encourage exploration and curiosity at whatever stage of awareness the client is in. You can explore the family structure and norms without labeling anyone as narcissistic or calling out problem behaviors.

Experiential letter writing is a very contained form of role play that incorporates all of the role-based theory of psychodrama but doesn’t require the kind of training psychodrama needs. Use these worksheets with your clients to allow them to fully say what they need to say, as the letters are never meant to be sent.
Use these DBT diary cards to track anything that is important to your client’s well-being, treatment, and/or process of change as well as the skills they practice.
