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.
Suitable for: For qualified professionals in individual, child, family and group therapy who are interested in finding out more about the couple's relationship.
Krisztina Glausius is a couple and individual psychoanalytic psychotherapist and a visiting supervisor and lecturer at Tavistock Relationships where she has formerly worked as Head of Clinical Services.
Krisztina has developed several innovative approaches ranging from brief time-limited couple therapy through to services providing therapeutic support to adopting parents or conflicted separating couples. She has co-authored papers resulting from these and other projects. She has published guides to support parents who separate as well as for professionals who are looking for ways to understand and work with couples.
She has worked as a senior research psychotherapist on TR’s randomized controlled trial examining the effectiveness of its Parents in Conflict Service and was part of the clinical team delivering the Parents in Dispute Project, a mentalization-based intervention aimed at helping high conflict separated parental couples to ensure better outcomes for their children. Both of these roles involve a creative application of analytically informed therapeutic work with couples, groups and individuals.
She works analytically with couples and individuals in her private practice in South East London.
