This is a blog about the oldest human addiction: control.
It's co-authored by Steve, a therapist who specializes in control issues, and Bert, his control-addicted inner monkey.
(Bert's a metaphor. Steve is fairly real.)

"Monkeytraps 101: Bert's Crash Course in Control"
A basic introduction to the most important unconscious idea in your life.
Serialized weekly at Mental Health Talk
Monkey House is our sister site.
It's a forum we set up for people who want to talk about (or eavesdrop while others talk about) control issues.
It's a big house, with six rooms devoted to different topics.
In THE STUDY we talk about the idea of control
In THE LIVING ROOM we talk about control and feelings.
In THE BEDROOM we talk about control and relationships.
In THE PLAYROOM we talk about control and parenting.
In THE KITCHEN we talk about control and self-care.
And in THE BATHROOM -- well, that's for venting.
