Transference, Countertransference, and Unconscious Communication.

Richard G. Erskine, PhD.

A 5-day Training and Experiential Seminar: Wednesday, October 9 to Sunday, October 13, 2019
Domaine Les Fougeres, Mirmande, France (near Montelimar)

In psychotherapy unconscious communication may be expressed though the client’s affect, enacted in the client’s behavior, encoded in the client’s stories and metaphors, and engendered in the psy-chotherapist’s emotional response. A serious, in-depth psycho-therapy requires the psychotherapist to constantly attend to vari-ous expressions of Transference, Countertransference, and Uncon-scious Communication.

Through formal teaching, discussions, and case-discussion this five-day Seminar we will focus on:
• decoding our clients’ unconscious relational patterns;
• exploring the psychotherapist’s physiological, affective, and fan-tasy responses to the client;
• distinguishing between transference and transactions;
• enhancing inter-subjective contact;
• identifying domains of unconscious communication; and,
• translating juxtaposition reactions into full communication.

This Seminar is for mental health professionals who want to refine their therapeutic attunement and skill by applying a knowledge transference, countertransference, and unconscious communica-tion in therapeutic practice. The Seminar will include: formal teach-ing; live therapy demonstrations with some members of the group; active group discussions about the theory and methods used in the live therapy; and/or case discussions of participants’ clients.

Participants are requested to read the article entitled “Transference and Transactions: Critique from an Intrapsychic and Integrative Perspective” that is posted on the website: . Please come to the workshop prepared to ask questions and engage in a lively discussion about the theory and methods of a developmentally based, relationally focused Integrative Psychotherapy.
