abstract

  • Six cases treated with Brief Dynamic Psychotherapy were studied. Initial countertransferential reactions were identified, and expectations were determined concerning the evolution of the patient-therapist relationship. The existence of a basic pattern of emotional response to the patient in the therapist throughout the treatment was observed, and the authors propose to denominate it countertransferential focus. Three clinical vignettes are reported.
