More About This Title Transforming Negative Reactions to Clients


Transforming Negative Reactions to Clients will help therapists—established and novice—understand and constructively use the wide range of interfering feelings they experience in their working alliance with challenging patients. Contributors to this edited volume explore therapists’ negative reactions across major therapeutic approaches and across various disorders, including borderline personality disorder; the concluding chapter contains practice and training recommendations.

Geared toward practicing psychotherapists and supervisors of apprentice therapists, the book draws on integrative and relational psychotherapy, research on the therapeutic alliance, and social psychology research on the reattribution of motive.
