RODRIGUEZ CEBERIO, Marcelo; AGOSTINELLI, Jésica; DIAZ VIDELA, Marcos  y  DAVERIO, Romina. What patients reject psychotherapists? An exploration of the cases - themes and personality styles - that disturb psychologists and psychiatrists in clinical work. Cienc. Psicol. [online]. 2019, vol.13, n.1, pp.32-44. ISSN 1688-4094.

Although the therapeutic model is relevant in order to provide theoretical constructions that allow conceiving human problems from a particular perspective, its practical application goes through the sieve of the personal characteristics of the therapist and the particularities of the context where the model is exercised. Thus, beliefs, values, history, personality traits of the therapist modify the model, in the same way as the attention in a private practice or public hospital or the characteristics or themes of the patient. Therefore, beyond the model, it is important to talk about the "therapeutic style". Within the personal limitations that modify the model are certain patient characteristics and subjects that disturb the therapist in his free exercise. The aim of this work is to explore what are the issues (stories and problems) and the characteristics (personality traits and pathology) of the patients that generate rejection of Argentine psychotherapists (psychologists and psychiatrists), taking into account other variables such as years of professional exercise, attention area, gender and therapeutic model. A transversal and descriptive-correlational study was carried out through surveys. The main results were that the subjects that generated absolute rejection in the therapists were the torturers, abusers, murderers and criminals.
