Clinician's Quandary invites your take on how you'd handle tricky scenarios in practice! Each month, we'll pose a new Quandary and collect responses. Top answers from the previous month will be posted that same day and shared with your colleagues worldwide.
This Month's Quandary
I’m working with a couple where each partner says they aren’t happy in their marriage—and haven’t been for years—but also say they don’t want to divorce because they worry it could negatively impact their teenage daughter, and don’t have the money to support themselves on their own. How should I advise them?
