    This lecture will discuss the progression of psychodynamically-oriented psychotherapy with a patient in the community clinic setting over the course of one year. Through the lens of object relations theory, we will explore how the patient’s early childhood experiences of both hostile and withdrawn caregivers influenced her presenting symptoms and defense mechanisms. We will also examine how countertransference impacted the therapeutic alliance.
