Burnout, rescue fantasies, sudden rage and boundary confusion are all part of countertransference--the great occupational hazard of this profession. The conventional wisdom is that the best way to address countertransference is to work on your own family of origin issues with a colleague or a supervisor. In this course, we'll explore the model for how you can identify and actively deal with the cognitive distortions and extreme emotionality that lead to losing perspective on what a client needs. You'll learn to become sensitive to how your own inner parts can become activated by a client's emotional issues and how to restore your therapeutic perspective. You'll also learn a language for discussing countertransference issues that can enable you to address them right in the therapy session.
Richard Schwartz, Ph.D., is director of the Center for Self Leadership in Chicago and the originator of the Internal Family Systems Model. He's the author of five books, including Internal Family Systems Therapy.
