Re: does your T explain transference?

I've never had a T explain transference to me, although I did discuss it with one after she knew that I already understood what it was.

I think that if you bring up your feelings for a T, and they don't explain transference to you, it doesn't necessarily mean they're a bad T. They may be being careful of your feelings. Sometimes it's tough to hear one's feelings explained "away" as tranference. I think the key is that they should understand the concept themselves, at least, and respond in a way that shows they respect and accept your feelings.

What would happen if you brought up transference yourself? Maybe you'd have a very helpful conversation about it.

Some schools of therapy don't emphasize transference (like CBT), and it's possible that some Ts aren't trained to understand it.
