Working With Negative Feelings: Transference and Countertransference in Clinical Settings
Feelings, such as anger, envy, hopelessness, fear and disgust, are part of being human and often present the biggest challenge in working with patients, family members, colleagues or institutions. This is especially true for frontline mental health workers who work with complicated and often difficult cases. A panel of BGSP alumni presents examples of dealing with difficult feelings in a variety of settings, including a hospital diversion program, a group home and a home-based treatment program.
Presenters: Juan Faraoni, M.A., Lauren O’Sullivan M.A., LMHC, Sarah Smith, M.A., LMHC
The presenters have clinical, supervisory and administrative experience in a variety of settings including a rehab center for developmentally delayed adults, psychiatric residential programs, outpatient psychiatric and substance abuse clinics, a therapeutic day school, CBAT and STARR programs, in-home therapy programs, Boston public schools and private practice.
Jane Snyder, Ph.D., Cert. Psya., President of BGSP, Training and Supervising Analyst and Patricia Hugenberger, MSW, Psya.D., BGSP Faculty and Director of Continuing Education. Both have extensive clinical experience working and/or supervising in a variety of settings, including community mental health clinics, psychiatric hospitals, residential and outpatient programs and Lawrence and Boston public schools.
