Working with aggressive and violent patients is an increasing concern for psychotherapists, counsellors and other mental health professionals. The shortcomings of many existing models means that phenomena such as hate, aggression, cruelty and violence are often conflated. In this important new book Mizen and Morris critically review and synthesise current and classic psychoanalytic literature in the area as well as presenting their own coherent and highly practical new model. With its clear clinical focus and emphasis on issues of managing violence in therapy in a range of settings, this book will be essential reading for practitioners and trainees.
