Sticky Situations / Round Table Discussion
We're taking the June Meeting on the road to better serve our members throughout the state! Be adventurous... meet us in Okemos!
Being in the service industry we are generous and compassionate people. This sometimes opens us up to vulnerable situations. Have you found yourself in a sticky situation and wondered how in the world you got there? Or wondered how in the world are you going to get out of it?
Join Betty Huotari as our moderator for a round table discussion on recognizing mental health issues in clients, dealing with, and "firing" difficult clients, and tips for working with clients with anxiety, depression, and OCD tendencies. Listen to a few of our NAPO chapter members share their sticky situations and learn how they navigated through them.
Please note that for a round table discussion to be a success everyone must come without judgment and with respect for their peers. This is a forum in which ~ for the richest outcomes ~ we should feel free to be open and vulnerable. Tremendous learning can take place when we do this and become receptive to new ideas! As a reminder, we have all pledged to honor and uphold the NAPO Code of Ethics.
