Do you have particularly strong emotional reactions that you can’t seem to control? Do you notice your yoga students adoring you, clinging to you, or avoiding you? In this podcast, psychologist Gail Brenner, Ph.D. discusses transference, in which we see the world through the unresolved emotions and confused beliefs from our childhood experiences. She offers suggestions for how to respond and take care of ourselves when we are the object of others’ transference.
Gail is a workshop leader, blogger, and licensed psychologist with 16 years of experience offering psychotherapy. She speaks about practical ways to free ourselves from self-defeating patterns so we can experience lasting peace and happiness. She has worked with adults, elders, couples, families, and teenagers as well as people with pain and chronic medical problems.
