Looks like a good resource for every person involved.

This MappingOurMadness workbook looks good. I like this introspection and bringing down thoughts/feelings/stuff to paper. Would be interesting to see if one looks into it in case of a crisis.

Anyways... thanks for sharing!

Edit: "Crisis As an Opportunity for Growth and Change – Shery Mead" has a great perspective. I find that really valuable. But I'd like to add that if you participate such partnerships/friendships you always should also reflect this relationship since it sometimes tends to lean to one side. It's not good for your own psych if you are always the helper, you may find yourself in a position where you are no longer able to share your complicated state of mind 'cause you think this could worsen the state of the other person (or stuff like that).

This. Yes, I don't know if I can vent to her because I don't want to make her have the burden of my own problems while she feels so down.
