Twins in couple relationships

Workshop at Tavistock Relationships on Saturday 2nd December.

This workshop will address the important issue of the effects of the enduring unconscious twin relationship on all the intimate relationships in the lives of a twin. The internal twinning that occurs between twins and is projected onto others in their lives is a central dynamic in twins, and if it is not recognised and attended to, it will significantly affect the relationships in which a twin engages and those who form relationships with twins. We will look at the dynamics of the twin relationship itself and the family, and marital and couple relationships, and parent-child relationships. It will also address the therapeutic relationships and it is essential for the therapist to recognise the twin transference in the couple and the compelling projections of the twin relationship onto the therapist.
