Counsellors and psychotherapists often encounter difficult situations with clients for which they feel ill prepared. At any stage in the process a client may experience a crisis or set back in their progress or simply be unable to move beyond a certain point. Working through Setbacks in Psychotherapy is therefore intended to help therapists respond to such events which form major obstacles to the successful development and maintenance of the therapeutic relationship. The authors present a framework for understanding the problems that arise and offers effective guidance for working through difficult situations which test the skills of even the most experienced practitioners. Until now little has been written about the

One of therapy's greatest challenges is the moment of transference, when a patient unconsciously transfers emotion or desire to a new and present object, in some cases the therapist. During the course of treatment, a patient's projections and the analyst's struggle to divert them can stress, distort, or contaminate the therapeutic relationship. It may lead to various forms of enactment, in which the therapist unconsciously colludes with the client in interpretation and treatment, or projective identification, in which the client imposes negative feelings and behaviors onto the therapist, further interfering with analysis and intervention.
This work shows that if therapists can approach religious behaviour and religious fantasies in the neutral way that they view all behaviour, the orthodox Jewish patient becomes a more loving and constructive human being who does not repudiate his or her religion but practices it more maturely.
Shows therapists how to deviate from the usual technical prescriptions in order to use themselves creatively and innovatively without losing sight of the patient's conflicts and therapeutic needs.
Advances the proposition that the first responsibility of psychotherapists is to analyse their own resistance to their patients. This primer aims at both new and experienced professionals, outlining the various kinds of counterresistance, their manifestations and how to analyse and resolve them.
