Meet the Authors: An Interview with Steven Tuber, Ph.D.

 Dr. Tuber author of Early Encounters with Children and Adolescents: Beginning Psychodynamic Therapists’ First Case, published by Routledge
Book Description from the Publisher’s Website:
Early Encounters with Children and Adolescents is the first training guide to use the works of beginning therapists as its focus. Far too often, therapists in training are given the "classics" to read—case histories by the masters in the field, which can sometimes leave beginning therapists intimidated or even in despair as to whether they can ever reach that level of proficiency. This book is the first to remediate that situation by providing beginners with role models they can more easily internalize through realistic case histories that reveal the ins and outs of starting in a craft that is never fully mastered. The therapists refer to the processes they struggled with while treating these patients. Eight beginning clinicians discuss aspects of their clinical process, including: issues of transference and countertransference; the role of supervision; doing parent consultations, especially when one is not yet a parent; cultural/racial/socioeconomic differences between patient and therapist; and the vulnerability of not understanding for long moments in treatment. 
Steven Tuber, PhD, ABPP, is professor of psychology and director of clinical training in the doctoral program in clinical psychology at the City College of New York, where he has taught for nearly 30 years. He is the author of three critically acclaimed books: Attachment, Play, and Authenticity: A Winnicott Primer (2008), Starting Treatment with Children and Adolescents (2011), and Understanding Personality Through Projective Testing (2012). 
  • List two common types of countertransference reactions in beginning clinicians 
  • List two important components of supervision for beginning psychotherapists
CE Credits: One American Psychological Association CE credit is available for each of these offerings thru The Practice Institute upon completion of an evaluation form and payment of an administrative fee of $10 for the credit.
