The Shadow Knows: Countertransference for Beginning Therapists with Renee Beck, MFT
About the Presentation
When you have an emotional, energetic, or judgmental response to a client, how do you tell if it’s a natural relational response, your own unresolved issues coming up, or information about the client? (It’s often all three!) What can you do with your own material that arises in sessions? How do you decipher what your unconscious is telling you about your client? And, most importantly, how can you use all this to be of best service to your client’s process? Through examples, discussion, and short exercises, begin to explore these important questions.
