We often wonder about the future of Transference Focused Psychotherapy (TFP) and the challenges that lie ahead, as well as the directions we would like to pursue. The paper featured this month examines the recent developments of our technique, observing how specific principles of TFP have naturally met the needs of the broader community of mental health providers.
Over the past four decades, there has been a gradual increase in attention given to the personality component of various pathologies and pathological or quasi-pathological circumstances. For instance, the study of pathological dynamics in large groups.
The author of the paper, Richard Hersh MD, is a psychiatrist, psychoanalyst, certified TFP supervisor, and a well-known figure for his contributions in expanding the applications of TFP to different clinical settings. This includes settings that do not primarily focus on psychotherapy-based interventions.
