Trial by fire
Had my 2nd session with new clients at LDS social services. Had 3 lovely clients with big problems, but I feel they are making small but gratifying steps to health and to change. On the other hand, Family therapy is really, really wild. I was trying to problem solve with a family and I had one parent get really mad at me, blow a gasket, storm out of the room, refuse to come back into the room. This person was so mad and I was alone at the agency. I was at a loss at what to do! This moment was really tense. I didn't ever have this happen at Mental Health corp of Denver and all my sessions in my home office have been really subdued. What an adventure! Finally I was able to get the client calmed down.
