TRANSFERENCE, issues of To be expected. Transference issues area given when working with programmed multiples. It comes with the territory. The programmed multiple’s mind naturally sets itself up fora proxy. (A proxy is someone who stands in for another) Instead of seeing it as something to be feared, hopefully the therapists can begin seeing that transference actually has a great deal of positives. The person who suffers the most from transference is the therapist, who will wonder at times if he or she is coming or going. What is also interesting, is that not only is the therapist the one who has to endure the brunt of the transference issues, the therapist is also generally the primary trigger of the transference problem. Transference issues are related to memories, and the victim’s memories are very intense. The programming memories are often abreacted in a drugged state, so it is hard to separate the therapist from the abusers in the fog of the memory.
