The Use of the Interactive Field between the Therapist and Patient

Event Description

Humanistic Psychology Lecture Series

William James College is excited to announce the third lecture in the continuing lecture series that focuses on the current role of Humanistic Psychology in the context of the continually changing dynamics within the field of psychology and mental health practice. While evidence based treatments and behavioral protocols have come to prominence in recent years, humanistic psychology remains at the core of the human transaction and process that is psychotherapy. This lecture series aims to bring esteemed colleagues from around the country whose primary focus is on the humanistic perspective in psychotherapy to help articulate why this perspective remains so vital and necessary in contemporary clinical practice.

The Use of the Interactive Field between the Therapist and Patient

Wednesday, September 7, 2016 from 7:00- 8:30 pm

at William James College, Newton

Dr. Joseph Cambray will be giving the third lecture of the Humanistic Psychology lecture series entitled The Use of the Interactive Field between the Therapist and Patient.  The interactive field describes the subtle and complex ways in which the therapist and patient mutually influence each other through unconscious or subliminal interactions. Dr. Cambray has focused much of his research and writing on these “moments of meeting”, especially related to the therapeutic process itself. Dr. Bob Childs will interview Dr. Cambray to explore what happens at this level of the therapeutic endeavor and to attempt to help clinicians learn how to work with the interactive field. The audience will be invited to ask questions.

Learning objectives:

  • Discuss the Jungian understanding of transference and countertransference experience as it related to the interactive field.

  • Describe how to develop awareness of countertransference experience as it relates to the interactive field

  • Examine the Jungian understanding of the nature of the Interactive field
