Journal of the American Academy of Psychoanalysis. XIII, 1985: Resistance and Primitive Anxiety. James B. McCarthy. Pp. 181-189.

Roderick Gilkey

Resistance is described as arising from both intrapsychic and interpersonal events that convey fears of growth and change. Such growth, when equated with death, provokes "death anxiety," the feared loss of a sense of an individuated self. Unconscious fears of change, primitive anxieties associated with such fears, and the resistance that results, can be overcome through the psychoanalytic process, which helps the patient attain greater emotional freedom.
