Transference Workshop

Transference: "the Inarticulate Speech of the Heart"

(Van Morrison)

Transference – the seemingly mysterious force that so influences our choices, reactions, feelings and behaviour. This 2 day workshop will help participants gain a deeper understanding of the nature of transference and counter-transference and how to work therapeutically with the many manifestations of this phenomenon by understanding its purpose and identifying the underlying unmet needs of the client, and the vulnerabilities of the therapist.

The course includes the following:

  • The origins and nature of transference.

  • The different manifestations of transference:

  • Projective

  • Introjective

  • Transformational

  • Erotic

  • The nature of transference/countertransference relating.

  • Therapeutic approaches for each type.

The workshop will include didactic teaching, small and large group discussion and some experiential work.
The trainer, Robin Walford, draws on his own clinical experience gathered in over 40 years in the counselling and psychotherapy profession, to illustrate the theory. This brings to life an otherwise academic subject and enables each participant to identify their own and their clients’ transference and counter-transference issues as he draws on the material demonstrated in the learning environment.

You’re looking for the wrong person. But not just any wrong person: the right wrong person—someone you lovingly gaze upon and think, "This is the problem I want to have."
