Inspired and challenged by his students, Dr. Roy Barsness embarked on a significant qualitative research project with the aim of demystifying the what and the how of relational psychotherapy. Drawing on the mapping of his own mind as he sat with patients, contributions from his students, and dozens of interviews with senior analysts; Dr. Barsness identified seven core techniques that contribute to healing and transformation in the therapeutic relationship. Here Dr. Barsness shares about the interactions that inspired this research and the powerful findings that emerged.
Core Competencies of Relational Psychoanalysis features contributions from Nancy McWilliams, Lewis Aron, Karen Maroda, Allan Schore, and other leading clinicians. Learn more about Dr. Barsness, his latest book, and other publications at theseattleschool.edu/faculty-staff/directory/roy-barsness
