- Transference: describes a situation where the feelings, desires, and expectations of one person are redirected and applied to another person. Most commonly, transference refers to a therapeutic setting, where a person in therapy may apply certain feelings or emotions toward the therapist.
- Counter-transference: Just as transference is the concept of a client redirect feelings meant for others onto the therapist, countertransference is the reaction to a client's transference, in which the counselor projects his or her feelings unconsciously onto the client.
