Use of therapeutic alliance for resource installation
Dr. Tobin will show why it is important to address the often overlooked therapeutic relationship; how to notice transference and countertransference issues, how to foster the therapeutic alliance; and how to utilize EMDR to install the alliance, once it has been established, as a resource to foster increased self-support, grounding, enhanced self-esteem and self-soothing capacities. Relevant psychodynamic theory on transference and countertransference, the applicability of this approach to various diagnostic groups will be discussed, contraindications will be cited and clinical examples will be presented.
