Victoria: A Study of the Countertransference through Poetry Writing.
Bean, Manya
Journal of Poetry Therapy, v11 n1 p17-31 Fall 1997
Discusses poems written by the author, an analyst, as a study of her own journey through the labyrinth of countertransference during treatment of a woman who belonged to an alcoholic family. Notes that the poems served several functions: as a means to study countertransferential feelings; as holding environments; as diagnostic tools; and as developmental signposts of the treatment process.
