> Well a lot of T's, with good reason, don't want to coddle or baby their clients. They want to treat them as adults who have agency over their own lives, are capable of making their own decisions. They want to try and work with the healthy, competent parts of our personalities to strengthen those parts, rather than with the immature, childish or psychotic parts of our personalities.

Somewhere in between I hope, maybe with some of the clarification you've given.
I imagine he recognizes it as something out of anger and retaliation, but has to treat it as an adult communication since that's who it is coming from. It forces another way to communicate I suppose.
