Stewart R. Smith

Spotnitz thinks that instead of trying to overcome resistance the analyst should use interpretation to create the precise emotional experience which will resolve the problems of the patient. This frees the maladaptations which arose in early damage to maturation. After a preparatory period of analysis the patient is mature enough for interpretation. Until this time the analyst will have made only symbolic, emotional, and reflective interventions which are really primitive forms of interpretation. One case example is of an absolutely correct interpretation which led to the suicide of the patient who was not yet at the proper maturational stage.
