Managing anger and aggression in the consulting room

Led by Dr Gwen Adshead & Jack Nathan

Saturday 30 May 2015



FULL PROGRAMME
09.30   Registration and coffee
10.00   Dr Gwen Adshead

Anger is one of the primary emotions we share with non-human primates and the management of human anger has been known to be problematic since the Classical period. Anger and other emotions can give rise to states of mind, and behaviours that communicate these emotions and may be an attempt to control the behaviour of others. We will look at the ways that negative emotions get communicated by the use of control and threat and those rare occasions when this leads to violence. We will discuss this from several angles: when patients talk about aggression and violence that they have perpetrated elsewhere; when patients are threatening in the therapeutic space, and in relation to the therapists’ own anger and wish to control.
11.00   Coffee
11.30   Live supervision session
13.00   Lunch break (Lunch is not included at this event)
14.00   Jack Nathan

Every practitioner has the experience of the intimidating patient filled with hateful grievance, and the therapist can be left therapeutically adrift when assailed by sadistic attacks. Jack Nathan will demonstrate how through working with the inevitable counter-transference enactments, using benign authority, limit setting and, ultimately, reviewing the analytic ‘contract’, the therapist can (re)gain an analytic position where therapy can (re-)start or sometimes realistically come to an end.
15.00   Tea
15.30   Live supervision session
