What's Love Got to Do with It?

When the alliance is strong and the work is deep and transformational, the real relationship emerges clearly. Many of our patients (and many of us) are more comfortable with rage and grief than love and tenderness. Being open to the patient's experience and expression of genuine love, having removed barriers to same, is often essential work. Yet, as Leigh McCullough used to say, "Love has become a 4 letter word in psychotherapy", so anxious were practitioners about possibly crossing boundaries.

Working with UTA to Overcome Resistance

An exploration of activating the client's desire for healing to overcome barriers to emotional closeness in two different phases of treatment with two cases of patients with character resistance.

The therapist works in trial therapy to help a patient recognize her resistance against emotional closeness and activate her UTA to help turn syntonic resistance dystonic.

A highlight of the final stage of treatment for a man with a helpless/hopeless defense structure as the deepest layer of his trauma emerges to complete healing.

Activating & Working with the Unconscious Therapeutic Alliance  to Overcome Resistance

Two case presentations demonstrate activation of the client's desire for healing to overcome barriers that prevent emotional closeness and healing. Panelists illustrate interventions to recognize, activate, and work with the UTA in two different phases of treatment with patients with character resistance. 

In the first case presentation the therapist works in trial therapy with a patient with longstanding anxiety, depression, and chronic pain. During this first session, the therapist helps the patient recognize her resistance against emotional closeness and activates the patient’s UTA to help turn syntonic resistance dystonic.

The second presentation showcases the final stage of treatment for a man with  helpless/hopeless  and a high degree of superego pathology, as the deepest layer of his trauma emerges. We observe how the UTA also guides the way when new defenses need to be addressed, allowing the patient to ultimately experience murderous rage, grief, and love towards his 'forgotten' father, completing his healing.

Negotiating Sameness and Difference

Marilyn Gulland demonstrates how racial similarity can evoke unconscious responses and the importance of self awareness to harness therapist and client unconscious processes in order to activate the UTA.

The Power of Inquiry: When National Trauma Becomes Personal

Yair Braun shows the power of the therapeutic-dyad’s empathic curiosity to mobilize therapeutic alliance and uncover links between traumatic experiences for distress and symptom reduction.

The Politics of Emotion


Charles Couchman considers the benefits and challenges of integrating EDT with critical theory, which emphasizes that mental health concerns are caused, in part, by economic and social inequalities.

When the Therapist's Race Triggers Rage

Session recordings present a challenging exchange between the therapist and a client expressing grievances about the therapist's race. The presenter will share her potential countertransference and encourage audience members to reflect on their feelings and experiences. The presenter will teach fundamental concepts which enable client and therapist to move beyond the avoidance of frightening feelings to provide powerful healing opportunities.
