HOPE

How to hold hope for someone

1. Ask people how they managed to overcome challenges in the past
2. Notice peoples strengths
3. Hold hope that people can change and recover
4. Point out any small steps the person has taken
5. If there is a set back ask them "What did you learn from that? What will you do differently next time?"
6. Ask them if there are any times they feel better than others?
7. Ask people what is important to you? How important is that? Why is it important?
If it is something they can't do right now and it is about health for example - is there anything else you can do right not to live by your value of health
8. Ask people how confident they are out of 10? then ask what would increase their confidence.
