4) Clients are difficult because the difficulty that they manifest meets specific needs for them.

5) Treatment goals with the mentally ill client are different from our treatment goal with the `well but unhappy person.`

6) Counselors should recognize that fear is one of the most prevalent motivations for sabotaging treatment.

7) Therapists rarely overreact to client behaviors.

8) Sometimes our clients are difficult because we do not have a repertoire of intervention strategies that meet our clients at their point of need.

9) The experienced therapist recognizes that their own limitations sometimes contribute to difficulties with the client.

10) The moment we engage in any detrimental behavior, our needs are met.

11) In family violence situations, the familiarity trap is an obstacle to overcome when providing interventions.

12) In our profession, we have been trained to help people make change, not to allow people to experience the consequences of their own actions.

13) 'Letting the train wreck happen' may be a difficult intervention, but it can actually lead to success.

15) A good treatment plan is nothing more than a set of goals.

16) Teaching is counseling, and counseling is teaching.

17) According to the instructor, denial is real; it is not a creation of the therapeutic process designed to allow the therapist to do something during the course of treatment.

18) The Treasure Chest assignment does not fix what is wrong, but it does reframe the couple's relationship in the context of what is right.

19) Highly difficult clients are often caught in the familiarity trap, paralyzed by emotions and believe they have no options to exercise.

20) Feedback is a tremendous way to motivate the unmotivated client.
