| #035 | VALUE > psychosocial > inspirational | 1070 words |

Between sessions it may help to counter the adverse impacts of daily life with uplifting messages. Not merely for counseling clients but for counselors as well.

Change is so much easier with frequent encouragement. Since many of us check our Facebook constantly, why not feed that newsfeed with inspirational messages?

Perhaps you already “liked” one of these inspirational message pages. Could you use another?

Below are eleven inspirational Facebook pages, listed in order of their popularity. Click on the name or image to open that Facebook page in a new window.

I see each as potentially uplifting to the counselor. And perhaps for the counselor to suggest to a struggling client.

By transcending conventional limits—gender norms, religious identities, political polarities, and more—Steph experiences a unique connection in life. And suspects others do as well.
