Feeling Hopeless About a Client: Podcast 089

This podcast is the narrated version of my article What to Do When You Feel Hopeless About a Client.

When a client is unresponsive to therapy, it can feel deflating. Here are five ways to think outside the box and regain your therapeutic motivation.

In this episode I talk about:

  • Constant, silent tears
  • Climbing out of depression
  • Learning from clients
  • The rise of the mood viruses
  • A terrible thought
  • Tip one: Stop doing what ain’t working
  • Tip two: Don’t (overly) blame yourself
  • Tip three: Use negativity positively
  • Tip four: Remember that people are surprising
  • Tip five: By your very being, transmit your positive expectation
