The Mind between Repetition and Change: A Metapsychological Approach to the Treatment of Resistances Language Translation

Francesco Conrotto

The object of this paper is to consider transference as a phenomenon that is characterised by being the expression of resistance and, at the same time, the principle therapeutic instrument/factor.

In confronting this complex problem I intend to give preference to research into economic aspects, particularly when dealing with the variation of quantity of cathexis of infantile mnestic traces that is brought about by the analytical situation. It is necessary, therefore, to start from this point of view: the contemporary presence and unsplittability of the resistance aspect and of the therapeutic one.

Consequently it is necessary to ask oneself what those factors are that allow a resistance which tends to immovability and repetition to transform itself into an instrument for change.
