Anger is a difficult emotion for many therapists. Many of us became therapists to help and think we should avoid making our clients angry with us. What do we do when clients get angry at us? What do we do with our own anger when we feel it in our sessions? Do we avoid it or can we leverage it to our therapeutic advantage?
Come join us for this exciting opportunity to learn how to effectively work with anger in the therapy room. We'll explore:
* the therapeutic value of working with anger
* how to identity anger in the room
* what gets in the way of seeing anger when it arises (within ourselves and our clients)
* and how to begin to skillfully work with anger
We'll use experiential exercises, case studies, and discussion to begin to understand our relationship with anger.
For beginning to intermediate level therapists
