A common problem today is the aggressiveness of the patients and relatives, apparently to the doctor. To deal with these situations and exit unscathed and maintain a respectful relationship with the patient, must be taken into account which could be sources of aggression in the patient: to) the first thing is to remember that the doctor-patient relationship is a transferential relationship. As we have pointed out, the patient may be angry with other doctors, with real or fantaseados grounds, and transfer their anger to the current situation. In these cases the most important thing is not to respond aggressively. Aggressiveness is a highly contagious State. When the patient apparently directed against the doctor his aggressiveness, the first impulse is to answer him on the same terms, that will increase the aggressiveness of the patient.
If the doctor does not abandon its place of professional, do not lose the calm and treat the patient properly, ends calming. (b) one of the most frequent mechanisms of production of aggressiveness is a disgust with oneself, which is projected on others, mirror mode. When the patient realizes subconsciously that it has a defect, but you don’t want to accept it, everytime he sees that defect in the other (you don’t need to have it, it can be an attribution of the patient), in this case the doctor, this will yield hostility. It is actually angry with himself, but he dumps it on the other. (c) there are humans who do not tolerate any imperfection itself and live the illness as such. They are highly intolerant of any defect and think that the disease is not.
The doctor reminds them somehow that they are sick, and that bothers them. As we see, they are things that happen to the patient with the doctor, place not with the person of the doctor. (d) frustration intolerance and lack of adaptability to changes in reality, are also a source of aggression.
