Psychoanalytic Process and Transference Resistance, with Notes on the Need for Re-Analysis

Stephen A. Morgenstern, M.D.


In the course of conducting second analyses, the analyst has a uniquely advantageous position from which to study the psychoanalytic process. His or her observations of the unfolding of the second analysis can be compared with the analysand's description of the earlier experience. Investigation of the differences throws light on subtle aspects of transference resistances—how they have been manifested and how they have determined the outcome of the analytic process. The author focuses on some characterologic derivatives of latent transference resistances and discusses a way in which they may be drawn into workable aspects of the process they would otherwise impede.
