Psychoanalytic Review. XXXV, 1948: Three 'Battles' During Analytic Treatment. Edmund Bergler. Pp. 273–284.

The unconscious ego fights against the influence of the superego and also against further progress of the neurotic illness. The third battle consists of the struggle against the neurosis through 'mobilization of unconscious guilt in the transference situation', which in Bergler's opinion is the main therapeutic agent in psychoanalysis. Properly conducted analysis forces these three battles to merge into one; failure to achieve this merger causes endless continuation of a pseudoanalysis and of the analytically unreached defenses as well.
