This workshop will discuss some best practices in service delivery-including communication practices, interviewing skills, creating collaborative environments with clients and self-care to assist advocates to work more effectively with difficult situations. We will also consider strategies to respond to challenging issues such as psychosis, intoxication and high-conflict clients.
