What is Relational Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy?

The relational psychoanalytic approach has gained ground across the psychotherapeutic world, with its focus on the impact of the minds of both patient and therapist in a co-constructed therapeutic space. This offers a way of working which is collaborative, respectful and has depth, and is well-tailored for patients who have difficulty with more abstinent and neutral psychotherapeutic approaches. Practitioners will benefit from this talk in its presentation of how we can work ethically and psychotherapeutically with the therapeutic relationship as a unit of analysis which tells us about both the patient and the therapist. The importance of self-awareness on the part of the therapist, as well as awareness of contextual and socio-cultural issues is foregrounded.
