Re: I think that someone I know has an attention-seeking disorder
Definately, but it might take some work on your part. Given the fact that she has this issue, the conversation is going to have to be directed by you. The key is to focus on issues that are tangable and concrete-based. Conversations of this nature help to keep individuals with this issue more focused and structured. Also, having solid and healthy boundaries on your part is a plus. When a person has good boundaries, they are able to veralize what they are and are not willing to put up with. Although this might be difficult at first, it is very effective. Let me know how things work out for you.
