We should distinguish two different kinds of confrontation: the angry confrontation and the empathic confrontation. An angry confrontation is one in which the therapist is annoyed, angered, or even enraged at something he does not like that the patient is doing. The empathic confrontation is no less forceful but comes from a different psychology on the part of the therapist. The change he is working toward is to help his patient accept himself for what he is.
