This comprehensive book compares and contrasts the main approaches of psychotherapy and the way they deal with transference. Beginning with an overview of transference as a difficulty to be overcome, the book considers also its full acceptance as a major tool in the hands of the therapists. Murdin looks at the difficulties and dangers, both technical and ethical, in understanding and using transference from a theoretical point of view. Her main focus through clinical illustrations is of the use of the concept to the practitioner in one-to-one therapy situations.
