"What is going on here?" Clinicians ask themselves this question when they feel pulled-into complex dynamics with their clients. This course will briefly review of different perspectives on countertransference, provide an understanding of projective identification and enactments, and the therapeutic benefit of joining the client's relational matrix. The goal is provide clinicians a framework to understand and navigate these situations, which have great therapeutic potential.
