However, our profession leads us to work with clients who have substance use issues, mental health issues, co-occurring disorders, addictions and in many cases suffer from personal tension, stress and anxiety. Our clients are often plagued with deficits in tolerating distress or other strong feelings which leads to personal impairment, feelings of being overwhelmed, detachment with treatment motivation, increased pressures for stability, disconnection with relationships and a hesitancy to complete life’s tasks. During this course, the participant will explore crisis intervention strategies while maintaining rapport and communication with the client. In addition, attention is given to helping the professional in understanding their role and function in identifying a problem-solving oriented approach while decreasing personal stress and conflict.
