Dealing with Difficult Clients:  Whose Side Are You on Anyway?
Effectively managing relationships with difficult clients is a worthy skill set.  Whether engaged with a difficult client seeking your expertise as a mental health professional or as an attorney, learning how to identify high conflict people and having the right tools to effectively and efficiently manage those relationships can make your practice more enjoyable, help distinguish your practice from others not up for the challenge, and enable you to provide a valuable service to clients in desperate need of help during the most difficult times in their lives.  This webinar will focus on how to identify difficult clients, the tools you need to help them define and achieve reasonable goals, and how acquiring and utilizing this specialized skill set will lead to a greater sense of enjoyment and accomplishment in your professional practice.
