A Contribution to the Papers on Transference by Eva Lester and Marianne Goldberger & Dorothy Evans

Eulàlia Torras De Beà

SUMMARY

This contribution in response to papers on transference by Lester and Goldberger & Evans focuses on three main points raised in the papers:

1. The so-called erotized transference;

2. The possibility for a male patient to experience his passive homosexual conflicts with a female analyst:

3. The male patient's fear of identifying with a female psychoanalyst.

The author suggests that the male patient's fear of identifying with his female psychoanalyst indicates that a debasing transference underlies the manifest (erotized) one. When it is worked through the fear of identifying disappears.

Experience leads her to disagree with the authors' view, that a male patient has only limited opportunity to experience his passive homosexual conflicts with a female analyst. She argues, with clinical illustration, that in the analyst's very capacity to cope with the patient's unaccepted, and therefore dissociated, projections lies the opportunity for the male patient to experience every conflict with his female analyst, in particular his perverted or debasing tendencies when he is not a pervert.
