Working with aggressive and violent patients is an increasing concern for psychotherapists, counselors 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 synthesize 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.

'This lively psychoanalytic overview of aggression and violence is both informed and informative...the authors present a number of helpful viewpoints on a range of topics.' - Dr Paul Crawford, Mental Health Practice ...[A] stimulating and useful book...Both authors bring extensive professional experience of working with aggressive and violent clients, in the fields of child abuse, personality disorder, sexual deviancy and forensic psychiatry.' - Jenny Duckham, Journal of Analytical Psychology
