During a session

exp date isn't null, but text field is

During the session:

  • If someone is highly emotional, give them time to settle and show that you are accepting and recognizing their distress.
  • Stay calm, sit quietly and use expressions like: • “It’s okay to be upset.” “Take your time, only talk when you feel ready. If you don’t want to talk that’s okay too.” “Take time out if you would like to.”
