Through a case presentation and roundtable discussion, this webinar will show how the concept of the therapeutic relationship provides useful and applicable ways to work with survivors of psychological trauma. This concept enables us to link the internal with the external phenomena affecting patients’ lives while enriching the ability of clinicians to reflect on their professional use of self. Concepts of transference, countertransference, the working alliance, and the real relationship will be reviewed through a clinical case.
