Bonus Handout: The Modern EA Role

Hot Tip: To best handle any difficult situation with the person you support, you must manage those emotions that block clear communication. When you are stressed, feeling confrontational or confused, first, breathe. Next, step back. Third, create a filler/fcalming statement. If you have trouble, imagine how someone you respect would handle it.
