  • What is Countertransference?

    Countertransference can be defined as a professional’s entire physical, cognitive and behavioral reactions to a client system during coaching, counseling, psychotherapy and training. If you are a professional in Logosynthesis, countertransference is an extremely important aspect of the working alliance with your client. Being aware of it can reduce distress for yourself and help you to use it in the service of the healing and development of the client. If you’re not aware of countertransference, it will stand in the way of your client’s process and will increase the level distress you’re experiencing in your work with clients.


    Content of the Session

    In this two-hour online workshop, Dr. Willem Lammers will present an introduction to transference and countertransference. With regard to countertransference we will explore three dimensions:
    1. complementary – concordant
    2. proactive – reactive
    3. positive –negative.

    The presentation will also include several ways to recognize and manage these dimensions in your practice. This will increase the efficacy and efficiency of your work as a professional with Logosynthesis.

    During and after the presentation there will be opportunities to discuss the material with the participants of the workshop group.
