  • Overview

    Much analytic work with individual patients takes place on the intricately layered terrain made up of our patients’ complex and shifting transference to their therapist and our own interpretations informed by the corresponding countertransference. Speaking to patients about our understanding of what is alive in the two-some of the analytic couple at any given moment is fundamental and lends each treatment its unique and particular atmosphere. This constantly changing transferential web holds within itself a multitude of repetitions and enactments waiting for interpretation.

    Krisztina Glausius in her lecture will consider the opportunities brought about by the introduction of the couple and their relationship into this already complex matrix. The extra dimension of ‘the third’ can both muddy the waters and clear up previously murky aspects of both the couple’s relationship and the internal world of each partner. Krisztina will introduce the distinct fields of transference and countertransference in couple psychotherapy partly as a challenge to practitioners but also as a unique opportunity for working through deep-seated issues, particularly related to the oedipal situation.
