The character of the good enough psychodynamic psychotherapist for elders

Volume 18, 2021, Nr. 2

Bertram von der Stein:

The character of the good enough psychodynamic psychotherapist for elders (Abstract)

In an attempt to describe what is to be understood by the sufficiently good psychotherapist for the treatment of older patients, the author lists the typical traps and biases that are rooted in the therapist’s own age and inclination. While the article does not aim at pathologizing colleagues it wishes to invite more scrutiny when reflecting on the adequacy of self-transference, counter-transference, and acting out counter-transferences when treating this group of patients.
