WEDNESDAYS AT SHEPPARD PRATT: "Talking to the Door: On the Recognition of Love in Psychotherapy"

Baltimore, MD US
June 28, 2019

This presentation will address the topic of love transference and countertransference which may arise in psychotherapy, including the barriers to their recognition and the role supervision may play in addressing them.  Love transferences and countertransferences may be difficult to recognize for clinicians due to infrequent discussions of the concept of “love” in therapy, as well as various prohibitions on such feelings on the part of both patients and therapists. This presentation aims to describe features of psychotherapy which may suggest love transference and countertransference, and to normalize their discussion and exploration in hopes that it can serve a therapeutic purpose for patients in therapy.  Barriers to change include the lack of supervision and collegial discussion of cases when clinicians become independent after training, as well as the challenges common to characterizing and exploring transference and countertransference in general. Clinicians may make use of supervision which may already be available in their clinical environment, and may benefit from having access to readings on the topic of love tranferences and countertransferences.
 

Target Audience

This activity is intended for physicians, nurses, psychologists, social workers, counselors and other mental health professionals.

1.    Describe ways in which “love” transferences and countertransferences may manifest in psychotherapeutic work.

2.    Identify sources of support, learning, and supervision which may be helpful when love transference or countertransference arise.
