Format: Paperback
I am completing my BSc at Metanioa, to top up my counselling qualifications,and completing a research enquiry on erotic transference, male clients and female therapist. This book offers different articles from different therapists, including a historical articles. I found the historical articles (from the 80's) seemed to offer most thoughts on the subject, and was dissapointed that female therapists seemed to skirt the erotic transference to talk more about love. It also is from the analytic prospective, which as a Person Centred therapist it makes it challenging to come to terms with the analytical references.

However if you are female therapist who is brave enough to acknowledge the erotic, both real and transferred, in the therapy room, this may give you some support and encouragement to do that. If you are a therapist doing a research then it is a must read so you can fill in the gaps.

HASH(0x8a5a6e04) out of 5 stars "The Phallic Mother" and other things that go bump in the psychoanalyst's office 16 July 2014
By MoHime8 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I. couldn't. stand. this. book. If you want a good book on transference, I recommend the other textbook I had required for my class, Seduction, Surrender, and Transformation by Karen Maroda. While both books had psychoanalytic language (I'm a resident in Marriage and Family Therapy who uses Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy), the degree of it in this book seems to be used for shock and is generally just in excess to the point where you miss the message. For example, one chapter starts with the author asking to talk about "incest on the couch". There's literally 50 other ways to say that relationships between parent and child replicate themselves over the course of the child's life, including in the therapeutic setting. But no, we landed on that phrasing.

I also preferred the Maroda book in that while it was one author's opinion the whole time, this volume did not provide practical in-session suggestions for managing countertransference and the use of (frequently non-sexual) feelings in therapy; despite the misleading and somewhat scandalous title. To me, this book (edited by Schaverien) seemed more like a parade of stories about "this one time at band camp"... except it was therapy and it was all the mother's fault. If you're more into the learning by reading case analysis after case analysis, this book may be right up your alley. It certainly wasn't up mine (try not to take that to some Freudian place); I could only get through 13 of 15 chapters before I flat out quit.
