Re: Therapist can't control his emotions Looney Tunes

I can't imagine it would be helpful for any therapist to lose control that badly.

Let me ask you this, though. A lot of times I say my therapist or my husband is yelling at me. And they answer that they aren't yelling at all. They're right. I hear an angry tone and interpret it as yelling, when in reality they're just angry.

Should they get angry? Ideally perhaps not. And certainly they shouldn't always be angry. You say he fights back when you fight him. Does this mean that it starts with you and he responds in the same tone?

It certainly seems on the face of it to be unreasonable of him. And your experiences with his anger may not in any way be similar to my own experiences with anger from others. So this might be totally unhelpful to you. But I thought I'd offer it in case it was useful.
