Do you have a difficult personality in your life? Would others consider that you are their difficult person? In this book we have turned the microscope on difficult types of personalities and patterns of behaviour, which range from annoying and confusing to the seriously damaging. Like most of us, you have probably encountered situations with family, friends, workmates or associates who have hurt you. Either they have dam­aged you emotionally or financially, or their behaviour has caused ongoing distress or worry. Understanding how people think and knowing some of the reasons for their patterns of hurtful behaviour will take you part of the way to handling your difficult relationships more successfully. People sometimes do not reciprocate our feelings, fail to appreciate our worth, fall out of love with us, betray, leave, retrench or disappoint us. These are all part of the pain of being human and do not necessarily reflect people being difficult. But some people have ongoing behaviour patterns which hurt many others. They leave behind more than one hurt or troubled person because of their difficult personalities. Some people have a mildly difficult behaviour pattern while others have moderate or very difficult behaviour patterns, and the effect of these patterns on others may also range from minor to severe. Here are some of the guiding principles we have used in identifying and elaborating on these difficult patterns.

Discover how to deal with difficult people in your life. Before I can go any further, we have a few things that we have to get out of the way first. There are a lot of ways to define a difficult person for the simple fact that there are so many different types of difficult people out there. For simplicity's sake, we will begin by starting with a practical definition that works for all of them. While the rest of this book will be covering specific situations and ways to deal with difficult people, there is one very important thing that must be covered first and that is your responsibility in any situation. Relationships with toxic people can be detrimental to your well-being, and you have to be proactive in ensuring that you know what to do if you ever were to meet one. The purpose of this book is to do more than just identify one of two types of difficult persons you can meet in the workplace. It also reveals the characteristics of these types of people along with providing you with valuable tips on what you can do to manage these unforeseen relationships. Life is one of the most precious gifts that we will ever come to own. How you choose to live it is entirely up to you; however, there is nothing wrong with getting a little bit of advice from time to time on what you can do to make the journey a tad bit easier. That is where this book comes in. I am here to help you to manage something that everyone will deal with at some point in their life: difficult people. A difficult person is someone who has the potential to impact both you and your livelihood negatively. In other words, it's a person that is utterly bad for you. The reason that a difficult person is so dangerous is that often they are not readily recognized as being very toxic. You could go days, months, or even years with associating with these type of toxic people and never even know how much damage that they are causing in your life. It can be very stressful to not be able to decipher between who is really trying to be a positive influence in your life and who isn't. Luckily, this is where this book will be most helpful. To protect yourself from a toxic person, you have to be able to know one when you see one. There are always signs. It's just a point of being able to identify them. Pull up a chair, because I'm quite sure that some of these descriptions will hit home for you.

In all branches of medicine, effective communication between health care professionals and patients, families and carers is essential to ensure first-class treatment. Increasing public awareness of health issues and the ready availability of health information have lead the public to be more widely informed about common conditions and the treatments available. Patients therefore attend a medical consultation better informed so the need for improved communication skills is even greater. This book aims to demystify the 'doctor-patient' relationship in order that patients and potential patients can more easily understand the information which doctors are seeking to convey as well as gaining some insight into the difficulties of communication from a doctor's perspective.Some conversations require specialised skills. Talking to people with difficult personalities and poor social skills can be challenging. Strong emotions of anger, frustration or distress need sensitive handling and particular age groups call on styles of address appropriate to their particular needs. Using the expertise of experienced doctors from many specialties this book covers not only the theory behind good communication skills but also gives a wealth of practical advice.The book covers ethical and legal issues, planning difficult conversations, the patient's and doctor's perspectives, issues surrounding special groups such as children and the elderly, and conversations with patients from different cultural backgrounds. Outlines of possible clinical cases posing specific problems are included with guidance on how to handle them.Readership: Undergraduate medical students, junior doctors and other health professionals in training
