Agency in treatment-resistance – a presentation by Jon Frederickson

How do problems of will show up during the opening phase of a therapy? How do will problems manifest in the transference resistance? How do they invite enactments leading to treatment impasse? In what ways might standard ISTDP interventions enact and thus reinforce the transference?

These and other questions will be addressed as we have the great pleasure to welcome none other than Jon Frederickson to the Malmö Center for ISTDP this fall. During the evening, we will look at the opening of a consultation with a person whose transference resistance had led to repeated enactments of the transference in previous therapies.
