Transference Manifestations as Changing Compromise Formations Throughout the Course of an Analysis: A Contribution to the Discussion of Transference Resistance and Transference Neurosis

Carl H. Kleban, M.D.

This paper will discuss a number of issues concerning transference. Segments of an analysis of a 30-year-old woman with marked narcissistic and masochistic character features will be presented. The emphasis will be on conceptualizing the transference as a series of changing and evolving complex compromise formations over the course of the analysis. The intent is to demonstrate that this approach to transference can lend clarity to the understanding of clinical phenomena and provide a highly useful guide to the technical aspects of the analysis of transference. It is presented in contrast to some selected examples of other approaches to transference resistance, transference interpretation, and transference neurosis from the literature. Some of the newer approaches have evolved from the object relations and self psychology perspectives, and some (i.e., Gill) are more idiosyncratic. One paper to be discussed reflects ongoing controversies amongst more traditional theorists as to the meaning and usefulness of the concept of transference neurosis.
