Sample text

Our position also shares the totalist’s belief that all therapist reactions are important and that countertransference may benefit the work if used wisely by the therapist, although we clearly do not share the totalist’s view that all of the therapist’s emotional reactions to the patient ought to be classified under the broad countertransference umbrella. As for the complementary position, we agree that the therapist’s 23 24 CHAPTER 2 countertransference is often a reaction to the patient’s material and, further, that patients unconsciously seek to elicit certain affects and thoughts from their therapists.

In addition to the three points of agreement that we have been discussing, let us note others. Here we draw heavily from Kiesler (2001), and we follow each point with some commentary. 1. When countertransference is occurring, mental contents are not mystically transported from patient to therapist; rather, it is the patient’s behavior during the session that evokes or pulls reciprocal therapist experiences. When reading some psychoanalytic treatises about patient defenses, such as projective identification, one has the impression that there is something almost magical about the effect the patient has on the therapist, as if the patient were magically transporting affects into the therapist.

This is probably a warning that therapists who have difficulties with anxiety tolerance probably should not be working with severely regressed and borderline patients. Generally speaking, internal countertransference is inevitable. This is so because we therapists are all “wounded healers,” no matter how well therapized or analyzed we are. The process of growing up and of living must create unresolved issues and vulnerabilities. Resolving our major thematic conflicts is certainly important, and personal therapy is a big part of that.
