Transference, Countertransference and Erotic Transference
in Complex Trauma and Dissociation

How we feel towards our clients and how we experience being with them in the moment are crucial in understanding the therapeutic relationship and the dynamics of the client. While awareness of countertransference is encouraged, it is not often discussed in depth in relation to traumatized individuals.

Commencing in September 2021, this webinar series will run for one hour per week over four weeks. We will explore challenging dynamics that pull us to act urgently or to reject the client in some way, and how to recognize and manage these in ourselves, how to recognize enactments from our own histories and how they intersect with the client’s own enactments. In addition, the complex feelings of the client toward the therapist will be discussed, with suggestions for managing overly positive or negative transference. Finally, we will explore erotic transference – what it is, how to recognize it, and how to manage it.


Online Webinar. 
The recording will be available for viewing for 30 days following the live webinar.
