This course considers what the negative transference is and how we can work with it.  In other words, how do we know if we are being a good “bad object” or just a bad therapist? When positive feelings dominate the therapy, the work is enjoyable for client and therapist but many clients need us to feel and know their anger and even hate. At such times they may locate in us critical, hateful, and withholding parental figures and experience us as bad objects. Under such stress we may perceive such clients as bad objects as well, leading to a cycle of righteousness and persecution. We will read some classic papers on the negative transference but mostly rely on shared clinical experience to gain some confidence in how to work with this crucial phase of therapy.

Dates of course: 2/7, 2/21, 3/7, 3/21, 4/4

Fee: $225
