Countertransference can be viewed as having both objective and subjective components. This paper presents a five-step method developed in New Zealand and designed to facilitate therapeutic understanding and management of countertransference. It also reports on an exploratory investigation of the impact of a two-day course designed to teach the method ...

Compared to associative pathways to fear, non-associative pathways are more frequently endorsed by people with evolutionary-relevant fears such as heights and water. However, the ways in which onset pathways are often defined and used can generate biases, and pathway ascriptions have been found to be highly unstable over time. The ...
