    Do you know how to identify different personality types and have the tools to effectively deal with each one?  Join Jeff Zapor from the State Bar of Michigan’s Lawyers and Judges Assistance Program as he helps us understand why some people may be difficult and how we can use this understanding to craft effective responses to their behavior.  Managing ourselves and the stress created when interacting with difficult people will also be covered, concluding with an introduction to the topic of self-care and why it is so vital.
