Roderick Gilkey

There are predictable and stereotypical transferences that emerge in the therapy of male patients in treatment with female therapists. The patient experiences both sexual and asexual transferences such that the therapist is experienced as a positive sex object, a negative sex object, a nurturant mother, an engulfing female, and a withholding mother. The female therapist must deal with a variety of countertransferences which include seeing the patient as a needy child, a provocative child, a positive sex image, and a negative sex image. Social norms often interfere with verbal expression of these sexual transferences, which then remain veiled or find expression through acting out or displacement. Such obstacles must be overcome for successful treatment outcomes to be achieved.
