Gerard Fountain

Oedipal interpretations are readily received by adolescents but are therapeutically ineffective, because the adolescent boy's struggle with his father is not at first oedipal. Rather, it is defensive and is directed, as in preoedipal years, toward a dyadically experienced father. Only by analyzing the dyadic relationship can we proceed to analyzing the truly oedipal struggle with the father. This is the progression as it occurs naturally in adolescent development.
