Ms. Barr, I want to thank you for presenting your guest talk of “Transference: A Treasure in Disguise” at the meeting of the New York State Mental Health Counselors Association (NYMHCA) – Westchester Chapter. We are used to having speakers present their areas of expertise in counseling at our chapter meetings. However, your talk was particularly memorable because of the level of engagement it elicited among our group members.
From the beginning of your talk, the content, coupled with your enthusiasm and presentation style, captured the full attention of our group members. Your words about transference truly embodied the heart of therapeutic interaction. In discussing transference, it was clear that you enabled our group members to think about, feel and experience the topic. It was a pleasure to hear you speak at our meeting, and I am grateful that you chose Westchester NYMHCA as a venue to present your professional expertise.
