Care recipient (cr) is hyper much of the time blurts out inappropriate things or talks toom much

Try: Allow for cool-down time if cr suddenly finds him herself incredibly sad unusually angry or even unexplainably happy cr may be eager to communicate these emotions immediately however doing so is likely unwise to ensure that cr can communicate his her emotions effectively suggest that cr give him herself some time to cool down so his her heightened emotions don’t cause him her to do something he she will later regret suggest that cr try to organize his her thoughts before cr can communicate his her emotions cr must understand them suggest that cr help him herself organize his her thoughts and think meta-cognitively by journaling about his her current thoughts and feelings cr could try writing in a journal or on a sheet of paper about the emotion he she is feeling and try to determine exactly why he she is feeling it if cr is feeling a negative emotion suggest that he she try to determine what needs to be done so he she stop feeling the way he she feels suggest that cr compose i statements below his her journal entry write several statements that begin with i focusing on how he she feels or what caused him her to feel that way in each for example if cr is angry with his her spouse for making a major life change without consulting cr one of cr’s statements could be i feel like i wasn’t given a voice help cr select the appropriate time before cr decides to communicate his her emotions make sure the time is right select a private place and a large block of time to ensure that he she has a chance to fully explore the emotions instead of having to rush through his her emotion-sharing process for example if cr trieds to tell someone how he she feels in a crowded cafe when the other person has 5 minutes until they need to rush off to work likely isn’t a good idea while sharing these same emotions in cr’s private dining room as cr and the other person finish up dinner is a wise choice encourage cr to share his her feelings after carefully planning cr must let it all out trying to stay as levelheaded as possible express his her feelings using his her prepared i statements avoid allowing this catharsis to turn into a yelling match if cr finds him herself becoming angry suggest that cr pause and collect him herself if cr notices that his her partner is highly agitated suggest that cr encourage their partner to do the same taking a breather while both parties cool down encourage cr to listen to the other individual individual’s response cr is likely not the only person who is feeling potentially difficult-to-deal-with emotions as cr shares his her emotions suggest that cr allow his her partner to share too giving them the chance to respond to cr’s statements and tell cr how they view the situation and what emotions he she is currently feeling
