Case Study
The article presents a case study on the new technique used by therapists in dealing with teenage anger. It cites the case study which takes many exceptions of the principles of standard therapeutic etiquette. It is arrogated that using anger therapeutically is a very risky approach which could backfire. The paper also states that therapists should possess the ability to interact. A case commentary by Janet Sasson Edgette regarding the issue as well as the author's response is presented.
