that is not so angry. Therapist: Are there other things you can think of? Pete: He
could take a walk. 'Therapist: Are there any calming things he could say to

there any calming pictures or images that he could go to in his mind? Pete: Well,

Using Words: The therapist prompts the child to state loudly what he or she is
feeling angry about. The therapist encourages the child to do so until the angry
energy dissipates. When using this activity at home, the child is told to go outside
or to a private place (such as his or her room or the basement or garage) to use
the loud, angry voice. The therapist clarifies for the child that the loud, angry voice
is used to get out the angry feelings and is not to be directed at another person or

He would stand, look Jeff in the eye, and say, "What kind of therapist are you?"
then shake his head with profound disapproval and walk out of the office. This
took its toll on Jeff and he began to feel bad about his therapeutic abilities. He
would try to offer some practical advice to the angry guy, but was always told that
he should "return to the drawing board." Jeff felt frustrated and increasingly angry
with the angry guy. It seemed Jeff could do nothing right. I told him, "It's not about

When it is expressed toward the patient, frequently the therapeutic intent of the
transaction is abrogated, for the patient recognizes that the therapist is angry. An
angry therapist has little chance of succeeding with the chronically ill patient,
even when an attitude of firmness and brusqueness is indicated as a therapeutic
intervention. As soon as the attitude is an expression of the angry feelings of the
therapist rather than a planned, controlled therapeutic attitude, it becomes
ineffective or ...

Limits are based upon the patient's safety and the therapist's personal rights. If
the patient is unsafe, the therapist sets whatever limits are necessary to provide
safety. However, once the patient is safe, our rule of thumb is that therapists
should not agree to do anything for the patient they are going to resent doing.
This varies from therapist to therapist. Thus, David gives Melissa as much outside
contact as he can without becoming angry. For example, at the start of treatment,

The young therapist who has been trained within the framework of the acute
intervention in a crisis style illness frequently responds to the frustration of caring
for the chronically ill by becoming angry with the patient for his failure to respond.
The patient who does not get well is perhaps the most painful reminder of our
therapeutic impotence. Some therapists respond with humility which may be
excessive and lead to a kind of therapeutic nihilism. Others respond with anger:

In setting up these exercises it is important to structure in limits like “both people
must stay in their chairs and when one is lifted off the seat, the exercise is over.” A

the heretofore unconnected feeling of anger and the angry behavior. She could
conclude that the therapist means by saying the word angry to validate not just
her angry feeling but also her angry behavior. The therapist might then observe
an escalation and not a reduction of angry behavior as the child tries to show the
therapist precisely how accurate the word choice is in describing her behavior.
Even if the therapist was fortunate enough to have correctly understood the
child's affect ...
