Participants will learn about what constitutes a difficult client and their challenging behaviours, why client might be ‘difficult’ for one counsellor to manage, is not for another.
Participants will then learn how to cope with these client presentations using specific techniques for managing their behaviour and effectively reducing the disturbing interactions. There will be opportunities to explore typical reactions to difficult or disturbing clients and discover ways to manage both the client’s and their own emotional responses.
Role-plays and demonstrations will be used to enhance learning for various situations, and there will be opportunities to discuss the applications of the material to practical solutions. Participants will be invited to offer their suggestions/interventions during the webinar.
Our continuing professional development events meet the quality standard recognised by many relevant
professional associations including psychology, social work, occupational therapy, mental health
nursing, community work, counselling, psychotherapy and more.
