Les fins de l'analyse et l'idée de résistance

(The Aims of Analysis and the Idea of Resistance)

Emmanuelle Chervet

Reflection on the end and the aims of analysis also implies thinking about the idea of resistance, and the use we make of it following Freud. From a binary and dynamic idea of resistance, embodying what is opposed to analytic work, we move on to an idea in which resistance is an integral part of the process, and then to the idea of the value of resistance, as a means of protecting cathexis, in the face of the drive forces of repetition. Two clinical cases from the Deauville Colloquium, Blanche and Fabien, illustrate two different modes in which the transference is established, both of which, however, need the resistance of the analyst in order to develop into a “terminable” process of analysis.
