9 August 2018

The Man Who Thought Therapy was Bullshit: Working with Character Resistance

In this presentation of a videotaped initial session, Jon Frederickson will show how to work with
treatment destructive defenses that would prevent any therapeutic alliance from forming.
The case will also show how to mobilise an unconscious therapeutic alliance when there is no
conscious therapeutic alliance.
In this presentation, you will learn how to:
➢ Maintain a therapeutic focus in the face of provocation and acting out.
➢ Deactivate projections.
➢ Mobilise the patient’s will to the task.
➢ Turn the patient against his treatment destructive defenses
