Content and aim: Transference and countertransference are important aspects of (psycho)therapy but are not always easy to recognize or to deal with. Transference from the patient to the therapist can give insight into what is going on with the patient and what he or she has to work on. But it can also interfere with therapy when the transference is complex and disturbs the patient-therapist relationship.
Countertransference from the therapist to the patient can also give much insight into what the patient is experiencing and how others react or interact with the patient. But, as with transference, it can also interfere with and complicate the therapy.
When able to recognize and work with transference, it can enrich the therapy and become of great value. Not recognized, it can ruin the therapy and even become a risk for crossing boundaries in the patient-therapist relationship.
Learning objectives: The instructional course is designed to help clinicians:

Hester Pastoor, MSc, is registered as a sexologist-ECPS, psychotherapist, and systemic therapist. She finished three masters in The Netherlands: Clinical & Health Psychology, Personality Psychology, and Clinical Epidemiology. In Belgium, she completed a Sexology master and a postgraduate in Systemic Psychotherapy.
She is co-director of the Sexology Program in Amsterdam and co-director of the ESSM School and ESSM Advanced Course. Finally, from 2016-2022 she was president of the Dutch Scientific Society of Sexology.
Since 2000 she works in clinical sexology and sexual medicine as a therapist, teacher, and researcher; she is currently at Erasmus UMC in Rotterdam.
She states: ‘Sexology is my core business and the love of my life. There is no profession more interesting, challenging, and beautiful than this. It is very rewarding to work with individuals and couples who have questions, struggles, or problems with sexuality. I feel honored that they trust me with these intimate topics. Also, it is a great field to do research in. The biopsychosocial and multidisciplinary aspects make it a challenge every time. It is never boring. And finally, teaching sexology to students and professionals who want to learn about this field or even want to become registered sexologists is a great experience. To teach them what I know, to learn from them too, and to see them develop is always a pleasure.’
