Question:

When treating a client, do you have to only work from one theoretical orientation?

Answer:

Yes and no. You ethically must work within your scope of expertise, but you should also treat clients based on what is right for the client. This problem can be avoided by having an in-depth phone intake session before you establish if you're able to take on a particular client or not. In that initial session, you can see if their presenting problem is out of the scope of your competence.

Question:

What is the best way to confront an issue with a co-worker's negative attitude towards you?

Answer:

Use "I feel" statements to frame the context of what you're saying to focus about how you are perceiving the statement, therefore you're allowing room for your opinion to stand strong without you ostracizing the other individual.
