What therapists experience in the therapy of elderly patients (Abstract)

There are various indications that therapists feel particularly challenged in the treatment of older patients. Against this background, four therapists were interviewed within the framework of a qualitative study with regard to what they themselves experience in the treatment of older patients. In the results it becomes clear that the diversity of the described experiences makes it necessary to use an extended concept of transference in order to depict the conscious and unconscious exchange between older patient and therapist.
