Response to the Discussants: The Fate of Narcissistic Rage in Psychotherapy

Anna Ornstein, M.D.

Nothing can highlight the differences between the various psychoanalytic theories better then a critical discussion of the same clinical material by analysts of different theoretical persuasions. It was of interest to me, however, that it was not only the analysts' particular theoretical orientation that distinguished their understanding of the clinical material from mine. It was also the method they had employed in examining the data that had either brought them close or put them at a distance from my perspective of the case. For example, Dr. Harris, whose theoretical orientation is Kleinian and would be expected to have the greatest disagreement with my position, had, in reality, very few questions regarding my treatment of Mr. Koenig.

In my response, I shall only focus on those questions of the discussants that I consider to be central to the understanding of aggression in the clinical situation.

The Relational Perspective: Dr. Stephen Mitchell

I appreciate the thorough and instructive manner in which Dr. Mitchell addressed the differences in our theoretical orientation that call for differences in our respective therapeutic approaches.
