I'm wondering how everyone handles patient splitting (and the introjection) when they are working on inpatient service? I guess I'm curious as to what strategies the staff use amongst themselves. The reason I ask, is because this has come up (the recent contentious thread, IMO - just for a practical example) - in various situations. Do the staff get together and discuss/deal with this or is countertransference dealt with quietly/individually? I find it telling when a particular pathology can interfere with the workings of a group - what's the best way to deal with this?
