Emotional Communication Series
Emotional communication is both the common experience of resonating emotionally with another person or group and a specific clinical technique. Modern psychoanalysis offers a range of theory based, goal-directed techniques in which clinicians use repeated countertransference emotional inductions to make interventions. This series offers four seminars on the use of emotional communication: in clinical work and training, in the classroom setting, in family life and with people suffering from dementia.
