Ethically, logically, professionally, and later emotionally I was able to get through a number of personally stressful situations and draw upon the experience of other professional to seek advice on best practice and method if I were to encounter similar events in the future to be better equipped and have the best possible outcome.

An example of a stressful situation I’ve dealt with is, when I was working at the adult day services I dealt with a young adult individual who always wanted to get her way, and when she wouldn’t get her way she get very upset and start yelling or bothering others. When the individual would act this way I would take her to what we called the ‘sensory’ room which was kind of like a time out room for the clients and I would let her calm down in there and sometimes she would talk to me (which usually calmed her down) and when she was ready we’d go back into the activity.
