Abstract

ABSTRACT

Maintaining neutrality while preserving an empathic, observing, clarifying, confronting and interpretive stance that enables ongoing self expression, is critical for child therapists. Doing so in the face of aggressive, domineering and occasionally even explosive behavior is a far more difficult and demanding therapeutic task. This paper is an attempt to clarify the problem with a case illustration.
