The Subject of History/The Object of Transference

Bruce Reis, Ph.D.

Rather than consider the patient's history as limited to the first years of life, this paper extends the idea of the patient's history to encompass multiple histories—national, colonial, racial, gendered, sexual, developmental, familial, and immigrant—as interweaving threads of personal identity. From this perspective history refers not only to an individual's developmental course but also to the shaping force of events in creating culture or the very subjects that experience culture and cultural events. Within the performative theater of transference, countertransference histories are actually remade through the intimacies of psychic and affective experience revealed in the analytic encounter.
