Clinician's Quandary invites your take on how you'd handle tricky scenarios in practice! On the first Tuesday of every month, we'll pose a new Quandary and collect responses. Top answers from the previous month will be posted that same day and shared with your colleagues worldwide.
This month's Quandary:
Many of my clients like to talk about their New Year’s resolutions, like eating better, exercising more, being kinder to their spouse. But I’ve found over the years that as excited as they may be at first to change their habits or behaviors, they often get discouraged, even despondent, when big changes don’t occur and they don’t meet their expectations for themselves. What are some concrete strategies, or even metaphors, I can use to help my clients start the new year with hope and not get overwhelmed with disappointment?
