The workshop will explore specific manifestations of transference and countertransference that we encounter in our consulting room. A special focus will be on the somatic expressions of countertransference, in relation to so-called “un-repressed unconscious” and proto-mental contents that are still unthinkable, as well as to how and when the transference can and should be interpreted according to specific clinical situations and different therapeutic settings, via the accurate working through of the countertransference.  The workshop will be particularly focused on the ways a mind can be developed out of unthinkable elements.
