How do you assess the challenging situation? (e.g., Your patient may be resistant, non-compliant, or uncooperative; treatment may not be effective.)

What is your emotional response to this situation? Note all of your feelings: frustration, anger, confused, overwhelmed, or all of the above and more!

 3)      Self-reflection

What are you thinking that is creating the emotional response in #2? How does this situation reflect on you? What do you think and feel about yourself? How do you perceive yourself and your abilities?

4)      Main Concerns

What is most troubling for you in this situation? (For example, you may fear losing the patient, “losing face”, or prescribing an ineffective treatment.)
