Becoming Real Together: The Parallel Discovery of Authenticity in a Traumatized Child and First-Time Therapist

Kira Boesch

This case study describes the parallel process of a patient and first-time therapist in finding their authentic selves. The treatment of a child suffering from relational trauma and early abuse is presented. The evolving relationship between patient and therapist is highlighted with an emphasis on the ways in which this relationship changed the definitions of self for both patient and therapist. The role of transference projections and the role of the “other” in the patient therapist relationship are also addressed. Finally, the training therapist's process of meaning making in supervision is explored in parallel with the development of the treatment.
