When the Personal Becomes Professional: Clinical Implications of the Psychotherapist’s Subjectivity
In this presentation and interactive discussion, Steven Kuchuck explores the impact of the psychotherapist’s life experience and psychological make-up on the treatment. By expanding psychoanalytic study beyond theory and technique to include an examination of events in the clinician’s childhood and adult life as well as related psychodynamic issues, Kuchuck focuses on ways in which these experiences, crises, and dynamics affect both clinical choices and the tenor of the therapist’s presence in the consulting room.
