This day is designed for professionals to consider this sensitive clinical topic in an atmosphere of exploration and collaboration. It is suitable for both new counsellors and psychotherapists and experienced therapists alike.

The erotic transference reveals much about the patient’s way of being in the world. It is the centre of the psychoanalytic project in many ways but it is highly sensitive, raising issues of intimacy and love, as well as hate. This may induce shame and confusion in the patient and engage the therapist-as-person, bringing to the fore the fear of acting out. It may challenge the therapist’s sense of personal and professional identity. Therefore confronting the topic in supervision may be vital.

This one-day workshop with Professor Joy Schaverien will include presentations by the speaker based on her extensive writings on erotic transference and desire in the consulting room, and will also include small group work and whole group discussion/Q&A.
