Call for psychotherapists to talk about countertransference experiences

Are you a psychotherapist working with individuals who meet criteria for borderline personality disorder?

My name is Kristin Reilly and I am a Clinical Psychology Doctoral student at the University of Auckland.

As part of my research, I will be interviewing therapists about their experience of countertransference when working with clients who have been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder.

Your experience will contribute to training in this area.

The interview will take between 50 and 90 minutes and will be conducted in a location of your choice.

I am seeking psychotherapists with at least 3 years’ experience as a psychotherapist.

For more information, please contact Kristin Reilly at:
