Example text

It is an inevitable, normal, and natural interpersonal event, lnvolvlng a therapist who is a genuine co-participant in an ongoing process. Countertransference is thus a more-or-less direct reaction to the patient's transference. Marshall (1983)has proposed a categorization of countertransference reactions according to whether they are conscious or unconscious and whether they derive from the patient's particular make-up and psychopathology or come from the unresolved conflicts and particular background of the therapist.

McCarthy (1989)suggests that analytic work with children and adolescents resurrects the analyst's anxieties and childhood feelings a s a result of the twofold influence of the child's anxiety and the dialogue of the child's inner object. Alvarez (1983) puts forward the idea that the raw and primitive behavlour of younger children tends to evoke anxiety in the therapist which may stem from unresolved pre-genital conflicts. The child psychotherapist may even flnd herself acting out wlth 14 DIMITRIS ANASTASOPOULOS & JOHN TSIANTIS bursts of unreasonable restraints or Interpretations about fears of loss, a s a countertransference reaction to a subtle provocation coming from the child.

They may idealize or underestimate the therapist, refuse to support therapy, intervene in or interrupt the therapeutic process, attack the work being done by the therapist, or unconsciously cause guilt in the child. This creates an atmosphere in which it is easy for the therapist to develop countertransference reactions. The mother's transference towards the theraplst may be particularly strong, with feelings of inadequacy, jealousy, or envy. Parents who are particularly neglectful or inadequate inevitably test the feelings of the theraplst, who may easily adopt attitudes and take decisions influenced by her countertransference.
