Transference and countertransference
Delft, Fee van
This book describes the therapeutic concepts of transference and counter transference, originally developed by Freud, in the context of daily practice for social care workers and supervisors in their contact with clients. The first section explores concepts deriving from different theoretical approaches including the Psychoanalysis and Transactional Analysis. There follow several chapters in which practical examples are used to anchor this theory in the daily practice of care workers and supervisors. The book closes with a chapter which offers help from a professional perspective in learning to deal consciously with transference and countertransference issues. Vital information for: Managers, coaches, counsellors, personal supervisors and frontline practitioners in social work, care and educational settings.
