Getting the Most out of the Countertransference


With Helen Rowland

Saturday 17 November 2018

Course Content

As therapists we are fully aware of the importance of recognising transference and countertransference in the therapeutic relationship. We can find it more of a perplexing problem knowing how to interpret it and work with it. This course is aimed at counsellors, therapists and supervisors who want to increase their knowledge of how to interpret and work with countertransference phenomena.
When used productively, countertransference can provide us with a very rich seam of information and knowledge about the client and their process but the first step is to understand how to use it.

Learning outcomes

By the end of the course participants will have a model for understanding the clinical relevance of countertransference phenomena and will have explored a variety of options for how to work with countertransference phenomena. The aim of the course is to develop clinical thinking and clinical skills.
