These days it seems there’s a jerk waiting around every corner—on the street, on your social media feed, even in your consulting room. Is there anything therapists can do for our clients and communities to help us successfully engage with the antagonistic people in our lives? In this recording, we’ll examine how to apply the therapeutic concept of radical acceptance as a practical and safe strategy to bring more peace, civility, and creativity into potentially polarizing situations.
