Tending the Soul of the Wounded Warrior
Course #: 2-B
Clinical experiences while working with deeply wounded war veterans will be shared. Questions will be raised and a discussion encouraged. For professionals, the countertransference issues loom large. For example, how does one hold onto affective resonance requiring attunement to the other when there are ethical differences? How do we sustain difference between the patient’s needs and the therapist’s needs but still remain in attunement?
