What is transference?
Transference describes a situation where the feelings, desires, and expectations of one person are redirected and applied to another person. In therapeutic settings, transference occurs when a person applies certain feelings or emotions toward the therapist. For example, the feelings a person may have for their loved ones, are unconsciously redirected or transferred onto the therapist. It usually concerns feelings from a primary relationship during childhood.
