“This was my favorite webinar. I learned the most about myself as a therapist and a great deal about the borderline elicitation of counter transference. This webinar was a revival of things I learned in graduate school and that I needed a refresher course in.”-Jane K., Social Worker, New York
Recent research suggests that the therapeutic alliance and the ability to heal ruptures in the therapeutic relationship are key elements of successful treatment for individuals with personality disorders. Yet, these patients tend to stimulate strong countertransference reactions that can derail the treatment. This seminar elucidates common countertransference reactions to each of the personality disorders. There is also discussion about how to manage these reactions and to use them to better understand the patient and thus, provide better care.
