Using the Transference in Psychotherapy centers around two dominant themes: the "old" vs. the "new" models of transference, and the role of transference in psychotherapy. As background the book provides an historical overview of transference, countertransference, and the therapeutic alliance. A number of detailed cases are provided, graphically demonstrating how transference is addressed in psychotherapy and briefly focusing on projective identification and enactment. This book is a must-read for both students and mental health professionals at the early stages of their careers, and a useful reference for more experienced professionals.
