    Couples therapy: becoming parents to the new baby

    in Education

    Even the strongest relationships are strained during the transition to parenthood. Lack of sleep, never-ending housework and new fiscal concerns can lead to profound stress and a decline in marital satisfaction – all of which affect baby’s care. Not surprisingly, 69% of new parents experience conflict, disappointment and hurt feelings. Couples can learn how to prepare for life with their new baby and how to be the best parenting team possible by finding new ways to strengthen their relationship, and foster their baby’s development during this challenging time.


    In her English-speaking counseling practice in Milan, Italy, Karen Rigatti helps couples with relationship issues, parenting of a new baby and culture shock and other challenges faced by expats. As a certified professional counselor,she specializes in working with clients on stress management, anxiety, life transitions (marriage, divorce, new parenthood), work-related conflicts, couples therapy, and cross cultural issues. Her office is centrally located in the Bocconi University area, overlooking Parco Ravizza.


    Karen has made Milan her home since 2008. Originally from the US, she specializes in helping other English-speakers improve their quality of life through professional counseling.


    Originally from Arlington, Virginia, Karen graduated with a degree in Psychology from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. She transferred to San Francisco and then London, before moving to Milan where she lives with her two daughters who were born here.


    Karen is a member of both the American Counseling Association and AssoCounseling in Italy, holding a Master’s degree in Counseling from the Centro Berne in Milan.

    The Fears of Counseling

    in Self Help

    Many people need and want counseling, but not without a handful of fears.  Counseling can be a scary thing. It’s a huge step for people to step into a unfamiliar territory. Know this -- real people go to counseling.


    At some point in life one could say - I’m all messed up - in a sense. Many times the people who really have problems are the ones who don’t think they have any problems – and that’s a problem.


    Putting an end to the needless delay of counseling is key. So let’s address the pros and cons to counseling and how to get started.

    Corrections Counseling - Behavioral Management in Community Corrections

    in Training

    Brought to you by The American Public Safety Training Institute (TAPSTI) www.tapsti.org, this 2 hour session will be reviewing the effectiveness of community-based supervision. Today we have drug courts, gun courts, domestic violence courts, mental health courts, boot camps, intensive supervision, residential treatment, and so on. We really do not have enough research on how effective the supervision is of offenders under different programs. Using Albert Robert's work entitled "Correctional Counseling and Treatment" we will take a look at existing literature on programs and supervision, we will identify different theoretical frameworks for new models for offender supervision, and describe a model of behavioral management for offenderscorrectional counseling and rehabilitation within the prison system that uses engagement, early change, sustained change, and reinforcers over a period of 18 months to give us the end result we hope will be realized - an offender who will not reoffend.

    Stress Management for Teenage Girls

    in Education

    Being a teenager today means having to handle more stress and pressure than most previous generations.  In a recent study, over 60% of teenage girls complained of feeling severely stressed.  Without the proper resources and emotional tools, young women can find themselves struggling in their daily lives.  By helping them identify the causes of their stress and learn effective ways to manage it, teens can significantly reduce the toll it takes on their emotional and physical health.


    Professional counselor Karen Rigatti discusses some frequently asked questions:


    What are the most common sources of stress for today's teen girls?


    What are some of the signs of being too stressed?


    What can parents do to help their teen if she is overly stressed?


    How can teens learn to manage and decrease their stress?

    Managing Holiday Stress by Managing Your Daily Habits

    in Education

    Here we go again...the holidays.  For some, it really is the most wonderful time of the year, but for many of us, it's more of a mixed bag: stress, added expenses, family (with all the good and bad), travel, illness, and yes, the food, fun and general festivities, too.  There's nothing new in being more frazzled at this time of year, but wouldn't it be nice to feel less frazzled?  Whatever your approach to self-care is throughout the rest of the year, the holiday season is when your daily and weekly routines - your habits - are more fragile than ever.  With all the additional demands on our time and the increased number of emotional stressors, we risk letting go of the very things that keep us on a more even keel, leaving us feeling overwhelmed, depleted and having a lot less fun than we'd like. By keeping a few guiding principles in mind, you can be more emotionally prepared to handle the stress of the holidays, and feel like your best self in the meantime.

    Corrections Counseling - Overview and Interview with an Ex-Offender

    in Training

    Brought to you by The American Public Safety Training Institute (TAPSTI) www.tapsti.org, this 2 hour session reviews correctional counseling and rehabilitation within the prison system. Correctional counseling is intended to transform a convicted felon, to rehabilitate them, into a responsible and productive member of our society. Those within correctional counseling understand the focus on the profession is on changing individual behavior and this often requires a complex mix of counseling, vocational training, social coaching, and academic enhancement. This session includes the findings of a nationwide survey on state correctional counseling and treatment. Using Albert Robert's work entitled "Correctional Counseling and Treatment" we will take a look at how the staffing patterns across the country, the medical, the mental health, the academic and the vocational training needs of offenders are being handled over twenty different state departments of corrections (DOCs).  "John" joins us as an ex-offender who explains how he got into the prison system, what he did, what counseling did for him, and what his life has been like since his release after 6 1/2 years.
