Title:
What role, if any, does money have in the therapeutic relationship?
Authors:
Kirkham, Pam
Abstract:
Drawing on literature from a classical and more current psychoanalytic viewpoint, the role of money in the therapeutic relationship is examined. Issues relating to the fee arrangement, the psychological representations that money can portray for both the therapist and client, and the implications of such phenomena are discussed. By conducting a qualitative research study using Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis, data was collected using semi-structured interviews from 8 participants who came from a psychoanalytic-psychodynamic training background. Findings revealed 3 master themes that explain the role of money in the therapeutic relationship: ‘Reflects the therapeutic framework’; ‘Evokes transference and counter-transference’; and ‘Reflects a sense of worth of the therapy, of Self, of Others’. The limitations of these findings are that they only reflect the views of a relatively small research sample and do not take into account the views of the client.
