S. Warren Seides

Infante postulates two groups of clinical phenomena that can be called acting out: 1, actions directed toward alleviating tensions originating in a therapeutic relationship (not only analytic) which have not been amenable to resolution within its boundaries; and 2, actions not originating in a therapeutic relationship but having in common with those that do, the essential purpose of avoiding the painful process that would lead to conflict resolution and ego maturation. Although his stated purpose is to clarify the definition of acting out, Infante's approach seems to blur the distinction between neurotic action and acting out. Both discussants of this paper, Charles B. Stone and Leonard Horwitz, favor restricting the concept of acting out to behavior associated with the therapeutic relationship, particularly the communicative aspects of an analytic transference relationship.
