Sheila Hafter Gray

The authors present the case of a young professional woman who suffered from the sequelae of a disappointing oedipal relationship with a seductive but frustrating father. In the second year of treatment, her failure to succeed with men was repeated both in a failure to achieve promotion at work and in her experiencing the psychiatrist as frustrating, accusatory, and phallocentric. The psychiatrist believed the patient was unconsciously furious with him, but he failed to clarify this. At this time, he unwittingly enacted one of the patient's dreams. In supervision, the psychiatrist suddenly made the connection between his action and the patient's dream. He could then identify and subsequently analyze the components of his complementary identification with the patient. He was able to help the patient bring her rage into the psychotherapy sessions. An extensive and well summarized review of pertinent literature on this topic is provided.
