Course Description:

Since its introduction in the Studies on Hysteria, the notion of transference has gradually broadened, referring to a constitutive process in the psychoanalytic treatment, a process in which unconscious wishes, infantile conflicts, and traumatic wounds become re-actualised in the here-and-now of the relationship with the analyst.

Such developments, from Freud, through the many core and derivative object relations contributions, lead to the contemporary baseline thesis: TRANSFERENCE is the patient’s mostly unconscious response to the analyst, as it is shaped by the patient’s early life experiences, which may include internalized self and object representations affected by adjacent traumas, passions, fantasies and conflicts; and, importantly, it can be an expression of a wish to revivify or actualize internal archaic and infantile object relations fantasies. 

The variety of formulations reflect a plurality of theoretical conceptualizations of both repetitive and interactive aspects of Transference, in regard to the content(s), mechanisms, and methodology of clinical engagement within the context of psychoanalytic setting. This course first follows the multiply dimensional evolution of the concept and concludes with outlining some convergences in the current theoretical and clinical plurality across the continents (IPA Inter-Regional Encyclopaedic Dictionary, www.ipa.world).

Throughout the course, the pertinent clinical illustrations from the assigned literature, from the instructor’s clinical practice and, when available, from the clinical experience of the participants, will be discussed, in order to be able to fully appreciate and master the theory in it clinical application.

SYLLABUS: 

First Class:  October 12, 2018

1. SIGMUND FREUD – EVOLUTION OF THE CONCEPT: CLINICAL THEORY AND TECHNIQUE

The 1st class will concern with:

1. The Evolution of the concept in Freud’s thought: Transference as a mental error (in relation to traumatic/repressed memory and Nachträglichkeit), as a displacement of infantile Oedipal wishes and disappointments onto the present analytic situation and the analyst; positive and negative transference,  ‘unobjectionable positive transference’ (root of the concept of working alliance) and ‘love/erotic transference’;  ubiquity of transference, as a ‘return of the repressed’, transference activates libidinal and aggressive/destructive wishes, desires, impulses and thoughts; transference-resistance:  acting in and out of transference, negative therapeutic reaction; relation of the transference phenomena to Nachträglichkeit (theoretical angle);

2. Evolution of Freud’s Technical armamentarium of clinically working with transference and transference interpretations: interpretative challenges with both ‘transference love’, as well as with negative transferences (disappointments, unconscious wishes for revenge and other aggressive impulses and wishes; importance and clinical art of transference interpretations and extra-transference interpretations; interpretations as constructions and/or reconstructions; relation of the working with and interpreting transference to the phenomenon of Nachträglichkeit (clinical angle).
