Lott: Question about recovering from transference

Posted by pinkeye on July 28, 2005, at 12:32:01

Hi Ms. Lott,

I have read your book, and found it to be of incredible value. It gave me such good points and validated so many feelings I had for my psychiatrist. It is an incredible work !! Thanks a lot for writing that.

A question I have in my mind is - How does one recover from intense transference towards their therapist? When for some reason you don't have the therapist to support you or work with you through your transference or if that help is inadequate? (For instance, when the therapist retires, or moves away, or when you move away). Even working with another therapist is not the same in those extreme transferences. How does one guide herself/himself through transference and work out of it?

Are there any special techniques, other than the obvious ones - talk about it, get support from other people? Many times, the transference is so extremely intense and painful (especially when it is romantic transference, and you don't have any contact with your therapist) and how does one guide herself/himself out of it?
