But as i stated earlier my client has some good days

This preview shows page 3 - 4 out of 5 pages.

But as I stated earlier, my client has some good days and bad days. And week 3’s weekend was all pretty much bad days. Not only did my client moved backwards in his goals, but I did too because my harsh criticisms did come back. My client was moody and non- compliant with any directives given, he also had a few accidents in his pants, even after we specifically took him to the bathroom to use (another goal in his IPOS where we direct him to

the bathroom every hour or two until he goes after we ask him one time and eventually on his own). When he had his accident, I went in on how bad his mistake was. I reminded him on how long it took him to be able to use the toilet and how I was disappointed but I honestly do not think it went through him. After all that, I did apologize and used the reward items calm him down. He was pretty distant that weekend so not a lot of his goals were achieved. And week 4 was more in between good and bad for my client. I did not criticize or complain and instead gave him space when he started to become distant and zone out. But when he did come back down to earth, we were able to do his activities with very little technical difficulties. Still followed through on tip #2 and #3 when he did a good job and tried my best to follow through on tip #1, which I realized it pretty difficult for me. Overall, when applying the Fundamental Techniques in Handling People in my work life, it was a good improvement. Yes, these tips allowed me to do a better job, but the way my job is set up (really, the unpredictability of my client) these tips would not be something that would change my work life completely. Another way I decided to apply HTWF into my life is by using some of the tips on ways to make people like you. The person this was really a test for was my mom. For as long as I can remember, my mom and I have always had a rocky relationship. If Carnegie’s tips were really something good, it would help us improve our relationship. Right? A couple of the ways that Carnegie offered were not applicable for me and my mom. Like #3, remember her name, I already know her name and if I were to call my mom by her name, she would probably beat me. It does not matter to her how old I am because she would hit me, and honestly it does not matter to me either because that woman is terrifying. Also tip #4, where I have to be a good listener and encourage her talk about herself because she will do that on her own, even if you do not want to listen to her. So besides these two tips, I tried to apply the other four into this personal experiment. I tried to smile at my mom and anytime I did, my mom would ask what is wrong with me and or what do I want. Two weeks of that got pretty old, plus it made my face hurt, so I would only smile when it came naturally. I also tried to follow tip #1 and become genuinely interested in what my mom was interested in, but the shows she would watched was a bit too dramatic for my taste or the books she would read were all in Bangla. These two tips ended up being a bust.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
