This interactive and experiential workshop will explore the nature of rupture and repair in the therapeutic journey between psychotherapist and client(s). We will examine how and why rupture occurs in the consulting room, and look at ways in which the therapeutic alliance can be repaired.
Most therapists will have experienced a sense of ‘getting it wrong’, feeling caught in an ethical dilemma, a negative transference or counter-transference or a boundary error. How we manage both the clients’ and our own feelings can be difficult. We will explore the various ways in which the experience of rupture can occur in the treatment of individuals and couples, and consider a range of strategies that may be deployed to offer containment and to secure the progress of treatment.
This workshop is dynamic, and will include theoretical understanding of the analysis of negative transference in the context of case presentation. Psychoanalytic and attachment-based models will be kept in mind. Participants are encouraged to attend with a case in mind for discussion in small groups later in the day.
