Transference Component of Resistance (TCR) in Davanloo's Intensive Short- Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (DISTDP)

Davood Manavipour

The present paper scrutinized the concept of transference component of resistance (TCR) in Davanloo's intensive short-term dynamic psychotherapy (DISTDP). This concept is one of the important Davanloo's discoveries, and paying attention to this concept can lead to mobilization of the unconscious and the complete removal of the patient's resistance. At first, the components constituting this concept were investigated, and then, the techniques which can be used to increase TCR were discussed. These techniques play a fundamental role in the rising unconscious therapeutic alliance (UTA). These techniques are pressure, transference resistance clearing, activating neurobiological paths of feelings, investigating the early genetic figures characteristics, being honest and truthful, transference neurosis identification, working with resistance against emotional closeness, working with intergenerational transmission of psychopathology, the character resistance of the idealization of destructiveness identification and rhetorical question.
