Countertransference is usually thought of as the result of the impact of the patient on the therapist. But therapists bring their own histories and motives to the treatment situation, often in unconscious form. The presenter will explore a dramatic version of this – the possibility that elements in his participation led to a significant number of his women patients getting pregnant. The presentation will focus on:
- aspects of the therapist’s make-up that contributed to this
- possible mechanisms of influence
- discussion of this phenomenon in a general sense of the multiple ways in which therapists may influence patient actions.
Participants will be able to:
- Participants will be able to consider the spectrum of psychological meanings that fertility/pregnancy has for patients.
- Participants will be able to apply self-knowledge to understand the various contributions that they and patients bring to the treatment
- Participants will be able to recognize the importance of treatment goals that are centered on the patients’ needs and capacities.
