Abstract
The view on countertransference has changed from initially discussing the ignorance of psychotherapists to now being perceived as one of the most important components in understanding the unconscious communication of patients. The purpose of the investigation was to understand unconscious communication between therapist and
patient, and in particular the phenomenon of countertransference. Therapists at a public psychiatric centre were exposed to vignettes that show examples of unconscious communication with obvious features of projective identificatory interaction between patient and therapist. A short and loosely structured interview followed. 21 interviews of this kind were made and analyzed according to IPA. The

Therapists at a public psychiatric centre were exposed to vignettes that show examples of unconscious communication with obvious features of projective identificatory interaction between patient and therapist. A short and loosely structured interview followed. 21 interviews of this kind were made and analyzed according to IPA. The
therapists well recognized them selves, and related what they experienced through the vignettes to their work. It showed that the countertransference dealt with feelings of vulnerability, inadequacy and powerlessness. The therapists reflected on the emotions
and emphasized the significance of supervision and teamwork. They didn’t distinguish the feelings as countertransference and benefit from them in the treatment. The therapists handled the feelings by: carrying, denial, making them selves immune, acting out and projecting, and their work did not appear to be integrated with accepted
theories. In the study this has been analyzed from the therapists work situation, personality and degree of education. (Less)
Abstract (Swedish)
Synen på motöverföring har förändrats sedan begreppet myntades
från att först ha setts som psykoterapeuters okunnighet till att nu
uppfattas som en av de viktigaste komponenterna i förståelsen av
patienters omedvetna kommunikation. Undersökningens syfte var att
fördjupa och förstå omedveten kommunikation mellan behandlare
och patient, i synnerhet fenomenet motöverföring. Behandlare på en
allmänpsykiatrisk mottagning exponerades för vinjetter som
beskriver exempel på omedveten kommunikation med tydliga drag
av projektivt identifikatoriskt samspel mellan patient och
behandlare. Denna exponering följdes av en kort och löst
strukturerad intervju. 21 intervjuer av detta slag genomfördes och

Synen på motöverföring har förändrats sedan begreppet myntades

av projektivt identifikatoriskt samspel mellan patient och
behandlare. Denna exponering följdes av en kort och löst
strukturerad intervju. 21 intervjuer av detta slag genomfördes och
analyserades enligt IPA (Interpretive Phenomenological Analysis).
Behandlarna kände väl igen sig och relaterade det de upplevde via
vinjetterna till sitt arbete. Motöverföringen visade sig handla om
känslor av bland annat sårbarhet, otillräcklighet och maktlöshet.
Behandlarna reflekterade över känslorna och betonade betydelsen av
handledning och teamarbete. De hade dock svårigheter att se
känslorna som motöverföring och dra nytta av dem i behandlingen.
Behandlarna hanterade känslorna i omedveten kommunikation och
motöverföring genom att: bära, förneka och göra sig immuna,
utagera och projicera och deras arbete framstod inte som integrerat i
vedertagna teorier. I undersökningen har detta analyserats utifrån
bland annat arbetssituation, personlighet och utbildningsnivå. (Less)
