Accepting Patients Limitations and Strengths

Difficult patients are often rigid in their approach to the world and limited in their capacity for social and occupational functioning. They do not seek or make changes quickly. However, because they often seem reasonable at first impression, there can be a temptation to try to change the patient's belief. This typically leads to frustration for all con-

cemed. It is more effective to accept the patient's beliefs and limited functioning, focus on the patient's strengths, and address how other issues or circumstances can be modified to help the patient cope.
