The Era Of Measures Of Transference: The CCRT And Other Measures

Lester Luborsky, Ph.D. and Ellen Luborsky, Ph.D.

This genre represents a formalization of clinical systems for transference formulation. For example, each CCRT formulation includes the wishes toward other people, expected responses of other people, and responses of the self. The use of these guided systems for transference formulation permits greater agreement among clinicians and more rapid formulation of transference.
