The dreaded and dreading patient and therapist

Chapter by Carine Minne in Psychic Assaults and Frightened Clinicians: Countertransference in Forensic Settings edired by John Gordon and Gabriel Kirtchuk.

'...a fascinating read for mental health workers regardless of their own theoretical background. Working with disturbed and disturbing individuals in secure settings produces strong feelings, and working with those feelings is undoubtedly an essential part of providing care effectively. This book is likely to challenge readers' understandings of their own actions and reactions.' (Dr Neil Brimblecombe, Director of Mental Health Nursing, Department of Health, and Nurse Director, Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust.)
