"I know that I am doing therapy correctly and well, so why aren't some of my clients changing?" "Why do I feel anxious when I think about my next session with that difficult client?" When psychotherapy stalls, it's time to try new ideas. Succeeding with Difficult Clients is intended to help psychotherapists and mental health professionals treat problem clients. Additionally, it explores the various forms that "difficult" can take, discussing the feelings and thoughts such clients evoke in the therapist and describing how therapists frequently manage and mismanage their feelings during therapy. Cognitive Appraisal Therapy (CAT) is a departure from conventional cognitive therapies where client motivation is conceptualized in terms of affect and attachment rather than cognitive schemas. Through this dynamic approach, practitioners will be able to integrate CAT techniques into their treatment plans to help them work successfully and confidently with difficult clients as individuals, as couples and in groups. Throughout the book, applications of CAT are illustrated and examined. Drawing from the authors' extensive experience, Succeeding with Difficult Clients is filled with case illustrations and therapeutic dialogs, presenting a powerful integrative approach to working with clients with personality disorders as well as methods for improving the therapist's understanding and managing of feelings that often impede effective therapy.Wessler, Richard is the author of 'Succeeding With Difficult Clients Applications of Cognitive Appraisal Therapy', published 2001 under ISBN 9780127444703 and ISBN 012744470X.
