    I was stuck between "Talk to your captor(s) as much as possible" and "Do not act as a figure of authority".

    i think i would talk to them .. try to find a common ground .. or convince them i was on their side .. even though i'm not... then they's probably shoot me ... with my luck..

    me too. I would think, build trust but don't be too pushy.

    That's a tough one. Got stuck between, talking as much as possible or talking them out of malicious acts.

    Think my answer would change depending on what sort of relationship i had with the client?

    Id want to build trust without being bossy or over bearing and try not to get myself hurt

    What is the right thing to do?

    After just going through my new employee orientation I think and it may be gross, after getting over the initial shock, I would cover myself in feces and play crazy! Then hope for the best!
    Now don't misunderstand me I was in nursing for 20 years & took a job with the state in the same prison system, so this is not new to me, just the job I have taken. I love my job, but being held as a hostage is still a possibility.
