Description Of Practical Skills for Working with an Angry Client
How to Work with a Client Who is Hostile and Critical
Skills for Working with Some of the Most Challenging Clients We See
When a client struggles with anger, it can affect their judgment and create even more barriers to their healing.
And when a client’s hostility and criticism is directed at you – that can be one of the most painful aspects of being a practitioner.
But to help our clients effectively resolve their anger, we have to look at the crucial role of the subcortical brain and how it affects reactivity. We need to know how anger leaves a lasting imprint on a client, and why it is associated with the same neural pathways as addiction.
That’s why we’ve brought together 20 of the greatest minds in our field to help us focus on more targeted interventions for clients with anger.
