This is a qualitative study which aimed to clarify and understand the use and impact of transference interventions in Short Term Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy with young people. It aimed at shedding light on how transference interventions are formulated by the therapists, when and how they are delivered, and what they address. It also sought to show how the understanding of transference phenomena is negotiated between therapist and patient in their verbal interaction. Conversation Analysis was used as the methodological approach to look at how transference interventions are formulated and how patients and therapists interact with one another after a transference intervention is delivered. A Thematic Analysis was applied to the data to look at what themes emerged in the transference interventions. Through this study I hope to clarify aspects of the technique in handling the transference in STPP with adolescents: what ways of thinking and handling the transference are more conducive to opening up new thoughts for therapist and patient and lead to elaboration and which others hinder elaboration and create an impasse. More broadly the study aimed at complementing and enriching findings from other studies in the same field, providing detailed material through a fine-grained analysis of the rich material that tape recordings can provide.
