At the end of the workday on Friday, I found my hand written notes on my writing projects. Some of them are nerd based, some are work related, but a few are the ones for the “Friday Workshop” day. Up first is something on the kid who scares me to this day.
As a general rule, I am not afraid of my clients. I worry about what they will do if they don’t get the treatment they need or how their lives will turn out, but I have never been threatened by a kid I worked with on a long term basis. Even the kid who scares me (I guess now he’s a full grown adult) never threatened me directly.
So I want to write about this client examine why this one–this brilliant, scary and thoroughly damaged youth–affected me so much.
Anyone have any advice, or direction, on how to approach this matter?
shut up just do it!
I wonder about confidentiality. On the other hand, if you don’t use his name – does that breach confidentiality? I don’t know…I think it would be an interesting read, none the less.
Oh, I’d never use his real name.
I have to agree with Jack, here. It’s your experience. Asking us for structure wavers dangerously on cat-vacuuming. Sit down, start writing your thoughts on it. Stop when you finish. Worry about polishing after you have a draft done.
I have, indeed, started writing.
Good for you.
Step #1: Start with an open e-mail to him about your fear of him. See what it tells you about that fear after you finish it, but never send.
Step #2: Adore AG
