Pam Fitch is back! This time, it’s conversational. Cathy, Cal, and Pam tackle the tough question of what to do when your client is expressing uncomfortable opinions. How do you provide the best possible care when your client is on the other end of the political spectrum?
NOTE: If our guest sounds like she’s being recorded from a phone held up to the microphone, it’s because she is. We had connection challenges, but she powered through because this conversation is so important. We hope you will too.
