Re: don't seek consciousness where there is none. Do you have any experience with clients who are instructors in university? Every once in a while I have a covert antisocial and my job is to maintain classroom order and university expectations. How do I set boundaries and have disciplinary conversations with someone who is constantly and covertly attention seeking, pushing boundaries, etc in an adult body? Very triggering and very exhausting to maintain composure. Of course, the nice teacher can never say, "shut the fuck up, crazy." Neither can the polite students. I have to have these professional confrontations. It's my job. Any perspective would help.
