Course description

Projective Identification in Practice with Paul Terry

  • Do you want to understand more about projective identification and how to work with it in clinical work?
  • Do you want to learn more about using therapeutic technique to enable the retrieval of projective identifications?

This workshop will study projective identification as it is experienced in therapeutic practice. Projective identification will be examined in the transference and countertransference; in its different forms whether attributive, evocative or acquisitive; its various motives, whether to communicate, evacuate, possess, control, deny separateness or overcome loss; its relationship to introjective identification; how the superego drives projective identification and is often reflected in what is projected; and as projective identification operates interpersonally in therapeutic and other personal relationships, and intrapersonally between the ego and superego. Working through to enable the retrieval of projective identifications will be studied in relation to therapeutic technique of the framing and timing of interpretations.

Suitability - Who should attend?

This workshop is suitable for qualified and training psychotherapists and counsellors. The primary theoretical focus of the workshop will be psychodynamic, but practitioners of other modalities are welcome to attend.
