Sample text

A wide definition is required if the findings of analytical psychologists are to be included under it, partly because of the conception that transference and counter-transference are essentially part and parcel of each other, and partly because both processes originate in the unconscious. The term will therefore be used here to cover the unconsciously motivated reactions in the analyst that the patient’s transference evokes; I shall maintain that some of these are illusory while others are what I have termed syntonic, sub-divisions that will be defined later on as occasion arises.

A frequent counter-transference manifestation is the tendency of analysts to make personal confessions to patients on unsuitable occasions. ’ This question often disposes of the first, but leads to another, for it is then said to be only ‘human’ to make confessions and also to err. The term human is contrasted with divine and animal, and if translated into psychological language refers to the ego. e. ’ If the answer is that the patient wants it or needs 34 NOTES ON THE TRANSFERENCE it, then we can go on to try to define the conditions under which it is desirable: when is it adapted to the patient’s requirements and when a projection?

Thus, Jung’s statements had become erroneously generalized and even dogmatized without justification. Jung’s method must depend upon the patient’s ability to introject his projections and ‘raise them to the subjective plane’. Out of this grows active imagination, which has become the means by which the ego is brought into a vital relation with the archetypal images. It is under these conditions that it may be assumed that the transference would become less intense; they might even signalize its termination.
