I'm curious, not to hi-jack Antigua's thread, but how does it feel to treat abusers when you've been abused yourself?

I went through a period of time when the very thought of my therapist treating someone who hurt someone like me, after listening to me, just freaked me out. I was trying to imagine him being gentle and understanding and looking for the good parts of this person. And it made me crazy angry. We did talk about it and it turned out that it has not been his choice to work with perpetrators since he works on the other side of it most often. And I figure out what it the anger was really about. But it is such important work - someone needs to help these people stop their behavior. that much I really do get.

Just curious.
