Psycho-Logische Beitrage Vol. II, 1955, P. 56: Von Carl Muller-Braunschweig. 'Zur Menschlichen Grundhaltung, Psychologie und Technik der Psychoanalytischen Therapie.'

J. Aufreiter

The first part of this paper deals with the basic attitudes necessary for the psycho-analyst's work: conviction of dynamic forces as existential data; respect for the individuality of the patient; recognition of the essential fact that man has the ability to direct his life and has an internal need to create future reality; conviction of the central power of Eros expressed in love and pleasure; and love of the analyst for reality, combined with an ability to keep this love at a distance.

The second part deals with transference and counter transference. The patient-analyst relationship is not only a projection from the past, but also a genuine experience of the patient. Counter-transference is compared to acting out. The basic rule demands first acceptance of every phenomenon, and secondly observation and communication of these phenomena and associations. This acceptance is based on ability to keep the phenomena at a distance.

The author concludes that the analyst's work is based on love for his patient and for the analytic activity and situation, and on the distance of recognition for this love combined with an ability to keep this love at a distance.
