What is the most appropriate nursing action to help manage a manic client who is monopolizing a group therapy session?

If a client is monopolizing the group, the nurse must be direct and decisive. The best action is to thank the client and suggest that the client stop talking and try listening to others. Although telling the client to stop monopolizing in a firm but compassionate manner may be a direct response, the correct option is more specific and provides direction for the client. The remaining options are inappropriate since they are not directed toward helping the client in a therapeutic manner.
