The Interpretation Series
Our trainers address the question ‘What makes a good intervention in therapy?’. Three thinkers from integrative and psychodynamic approaches will discuss answers to this question including consideration of the role of ‘the interpretation’.
The art of interpretation is considered a cornerstone of psychoanalytic psychotherapy and counselling. By means of ‘the interpretation’ the therapist will observe and comment on actions and motivations just outside the awareness of their client. As an intervention it can offer a new angle that somehow feels right-enough, or can be experienced as clumsy, uncaring, and critical by clients.
