Robert Spottswood Challenging Children Struggling Caretakers. DDP Canada Conf 6-8 Oct 2014

Robert's presentation took us through success and difficulty with the longer, slower cases. Robert says: "Not all our cases look like the successes in training tapes, and sometimes the harder cases seem to fill our case loads. This presentation will go over a brief video of a challenging case with a wounded caretaker and review some of the factors to remaining 'open and engaged' when conditions are less than ideal."
