In this presentation, the speaker will discuss the inevitable emotional impact on the therapist of working therapeutically with such complex, difficult and demanding patients. He will offer a way of understanding this disturbing experience and how it might be understood as the patient’s way of communicating distress and conflict. He will then describe how this experience has the potential to be used to the therapeutic benefit of the patient.
