The Dealing with strong negative feelings and fantasy tool helps you sort through what you want and what is beyond your control.

What do you want Guiding questions and Chart can be used to think through your goals for the intervention.  If you work with a group, Mapping combined goals Chart and Shared collective goals Chart can help you move from individual goals to group goals that you can all support. 

Goal setting can be complicated, especially if you are working in a larger group.  Collective goals summary checklist and next steps helps you bring all of these goals together.  Then  Turning goals into action helps you move from goals to the concrete steps you need to get them done.
