Sometimes it is hard to know what to say and what not to say and these sorts of encounters can leave us feeling overwhelmed. During the session we will look at and ways of responding to people who may present with a variety of emotions such as anger or acute distress. Handling emotional states, managing difficult telephone conversations and awkward questions.
