Dancing with Words: Transference and Countertransference in Biblio/Poetry Therapy.
Ihanus, Juhani
Journal of Poetry Therapy, v12 n2 p85-93 Win 1998
Argues that within biblio/poetry therapy, self and others are invented through expressive resources inherent in language. Shows how poetic communication conveys, through texts, "transformative" transferences and countertransferences that foster creative imagination. Sees biblio/poetry therapy as a performance scene where co-tellings, co-constructions, and co-interpretations of life intermingle and create shifting worlds of meaning. (SR)
