The New Haven Region is presenting a Mini-Meeting on

"Transference Focused Psychotherapy for 

Borderline Patients"

Setting up a structured treatment with illustrations of techniques through clinical case material.

Presenter: Jill Delaney, LCSW

All personality disorders have at their core the problem of identity diffusion, or, as DSM V characterizes it, a pathology of one’s sense of self.  Transference Focused Psychotherapy (TFP) is a modified psychodynamic treatment based on Object Relations and psychoanalytic principals. As the name implies, transference/countertransference are the central focus of the here and now work with the patient. This presentation will discuss the importance of proper assessment, diagnosis and establishing the working parameters of the treatment (via contract setting) with borderline patients. From within the framework of the agreed upon conditions of the treatment, the transference can be observed, understood and interpreted. Material from a clinical case will be used to illustrate the various tactics and techniques of TFP.
