The seminar is suitable for clinicians who have completed or are enrolled in a core training in Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP).
The seminar will focus on the concept of projection in ISTDP, and the way in which it affects the therapeutic process and relationship. Topics covered will include:
• defining the concepts of projection, transference and projective identification
• how to identify when projection is in operation in a therapy session
• exploring the relationship between projection and the superego
• understanding how working in the transference may differ from working with the defence of projection
• AB-ISTDP techniques for working with projection.
A clinical presentation will be shown to illustrate the lecture.
This seminar is only open to clinicians registered with a professional body (eg: HCPC, UKCP).
