PSYCHOANALYTIC ORIENTED CONSULTATION GROUP co-led by Diane Strongwater, MFT and Carol Harrus, M.D. Group meets Mondays from 1:45-3 in Palo Alto. The focus of the group is to help psychotherapists learn to use and make ongoing use of analytic concepts in their practices by focusing on beginning treatment, frame issues such as establishing fees, how to structure treatment and how to notice and work with transference and countertransference in the session.
