Keeping motivated and focused on being productive with challenging people is incredibly difficult. it can be frustrating when you don’t seem to be making any progress with a person you are trying to support, i guess we have a picture in our mind of how we would like that support to go and when reality does not fit with our picture then we get unmotivated and frustrated. it is all to easy to walk away thinking “well we tried” or the classic “you cant help everybody”
This should not be seen as a failing by the client but a failing in the support offered. Other avenues must be explored, new ides need to be created and other ways need to be tried. Hang in there, don’t give up on anybody.
Keep on keepin on.
