Emotion Center Masterclass presents
Rudolf Bleuler: Bringing the process into the transference

November 27th at 16-19 CET / 10-13 EST – online via Zoom

Emotion Center Masterclass

Copenhagen’s Emotion Center is pleased to present our “masterclass” teaching series. In these courses, we offer advanced-level training by prominent clinicians, who have inspired us over the years – our “masters”. While our intention is to offer courses suited to stimulate clinicians with a firm grasp of the technique and metapsychology of ISTDP, we warmly welcome colleagues at all levels of proficiency.

Bringing the process into the transference

In the technique of ISTDP, the transference dimension plays a central role. Ideally, the therapist’s task is to systematically tilt the patient’s resistance into this dimension, where it can be addressed directly. It is only here, in the transference, that the full potential of our technique can be utilized. But finding a way to address the patient’s difficulties in terms of the transference relationship can be difficult. Oftentimes, we find ourselves stuck in exploration of the patient’s current life, lacking a way to bring the process into the transference where work with the patient’s resistance becomes tangible and meaningful to both patient and therapist. In this seminar, Dr. Bleuler will offer advice on how to bring the process into the transference dimension, illustrating this process with an array of patients from his own practice.
