Impasses are critical occurrences in psychotherapy and psychoanalysis. The management of impasses can determine whether the therapy continues or falters. This course will review the literature on impasses with a view to providing a look at the resources in the literature that have a potential to help the clinician. The material has been organized into four sections: the definition of impasse; transferences that are commonly associated with the occurrence of impasses; countertransference responses to impasses; and, suggested remedies in the occurrence of an impasse. Each section will occupy one evening. Opportunities will be provided for the discussion of clinical cases.
Discover the nature of treatment impasses.
Explore transference and counter-transference perspectives on impasses.
Catalogue the recommended solutions for impasses.
Look for the theoretical implications of impasses for psychoanalytic theory.
