- -transfers emotional baggage to us
- -act as how they believe we will respond based on their relationships
Freud's Psychodynamic techniques: countertransference
- health care worker's unconscious, personal response to the pt
- -pt brings out our emotions so that we respond inappropriately
- Tends to last longer.
- Oriented toward the here and now and makes less of an attempt to reconstruct the developmental origins of conflicts.
