Gender and Transference: Conversations With Female Analysts

Nancy Mann Kulish, Ph.D.

The possible influence of analysts’ gender on the transference has received attention in recent psychoanalytic writing. Interviews with 17 senior female analysts about their views on this question are summarized. Most felt that analysts’ gender does affect the transference, especially in the sequence of material's emergence, and should be taken into consideration in referrals. Possible influences on the “maternal” and “paternal” transferences, the erotic and “eroticized” transferences, and the oedipal transference were also discussed. Gender-related biases or countertransferences were suggested.
