1. In response to particularly critical or challenging clients, do you struggle with maintaining good boundaries (become defensive) or do you “roll with the punches” and admit to faults? How do you navigate this “rock and a hard place,” protecting the identity of your client. Provide an example of how a client pushed your boundaries. Describe how you responded to the client?
2. Have you been surprised by a client who went from idealizing you to being harshly critical? If so, how does that fit with the client’s diagnosis? How did you react?
3. Have you developed a good relationship with a client, only to see the client regress or relapse? How did that affect you?
Each answer has to 150-200 words and a cite in the answer
