The author of I Can't Get Over It explains what therapists can do to cope better when clients direct anger at them. One of the most common goals of psychotherapy is helping clients get in touch with and express their feelings - including their anger. But when that anger is directed at the therapist, the resulting emotional overload can derail the entire therapy process. Managing Client Anger is designed to help therapists understand and manage their own reactions to client anger toward them. About the Authors As a specialist in post-traumatic stress disorder, Aphrodite Matsakis, Ph.D., has counseled thousands of clients ranging from combat veterans to victims of crime and abuse and other traumatic events. She conducts a private psychotherapy practice specializing in post-traumatic stress disorder and child abuse.
