Navigating Countertransference When Working with Couples

Friday, October 6 | 1:30 pm – 2:20 pm | Providence 3

When working with couples, countertransference reactions can emerge, often unconsciously, as financial therapists work with relational dynamics, conflicts, and complex emotions. These reactions can affect the therapeutic alliance, impair objectivity, and influence treatment outcomes. Therefore, it is essential for financial therapists to develop self-awareness, recognize countertransference, and learn effective strategies to navigate it.

This seminar aims to provide financial therapists with a comprehensive understanding of countertransference when working with couples and equip them with practical tools to manage and utilize it as a valuable therapeutic resource.
