"Ring Theory is a rule that will help you find out who you can turn to in times of crisis and avoid confiding your problems to the wrong people.

Emotional events can cause a ripple effect across families, distant relatives and groups of friends. Loved ones and close friends are all affected when someone suffers injury or a family suffers a loss. It can be difficult for anyone to know who to turn to when times get hard, but knowing who to turn to can help you to push through these hard times and get back to normality. Ring Theory, developed by clinical psychologist Susan Silk, is the newest psychological ‘rule’ to help people know who to turn to after an emotional time."

I'm impressed by this technique for finding and giving emotional support when needed. Susan's Ring Theory is quite brilliant in its simplicity.
