A conversation hour with Dr. Otto Kernberg, centered on reflections about therapists “therapeutic ambitions”.


Educational Objectives:

  1. Discuss how to avoid patient induced limitations on over-restriction of therapists’ aims as well as overly ambitious goals.
  2. How do we assess what are realistic expectations?
  3. And what are the patient’s realistic contributions to this assessment?
