This course teaches clinicians how to become more aware of transference and countertransference as they play significant roles in psychotherapy and counseling. We are all navigating our relationships based on prior relational experiences, and in the setting of a therapist or counselor’s office, this process is accentuated and can provide helpful material with which to work.
As a three hour course, this will seek to accomplish the following objectives:
- Develop ability to recognize transference and countertransference as factors affecting outcome of treatment.
- Learn the distinctions between objective and subjective countertransference.
- Develop ability to identify transference and countertransference in existing cases.
- Develop discretion on how to address transference and countertransference with client and with one’s own therapist or consultants.
