Example text

For some, as was the case for Racker, countertransference – like transference – is both an obstacle and a source of information about what is going in an analysis. 6 But the broader view of countertransference as encompassing many other elements obliged analysts to develop the new technical tools that Racker and Paula Heimann (1950) initiated. 7 Enactments in this respect are, as Hinshelwood points out, the end result of unnoticed countertransferences. Sometimes – perhaps more often than we would like to admit – we are enacting the countertransference, although if noticed this can still offer us a good opportunity for analytic understanding.

Lacan believes that in this famous case Freud made a mistake when he did not reverse the third dialectic problem, which would have made Dora face her homosexuality. Freud, to a degree, would seem to agree with Lacan here as he reproaches himself about not having paid enough attention to his patients’ homosexuality in their analysis. He failed to interpret Dora’s homosexual love for Mrs K because he could not accept that she loved Mrs K and not Mr K. According to Lacan, Freud was identified with Mr K in feeling betrayed.

He replied with a long speech: he knew he was not supposed to see other women, and he was willing to accept that. He pursued certain activities (study group meetings), but only once a week. In addition, he said he knew he was not expected to leave her soon after the start of their romance, but, on the other hand, that it would be too early to consider marriage. And on he went in the same vein. 11 There was every indication that the girl had little in common with the features of that imago. In contrast, the analysand’s mother was very domineering and controlled his social life – who he went out with and how often – and was jealous if he met new people, girls in particular.
