The Dynamics of Negative Transference and Destructive Forms of Transference. Hans-Jürgen Dallmeyer. Pp. 1-18.

Gerard Fountain

There are few papers on the technical term “negative transference.” In particular, the handling of its affective dynamics causes considerable therapeutic difficulties. The author presents aspects of a psychoanalytic process in which negative transference and its reflection in dreams and countertransference reactions are emphasized. Taking the new psychoanalytic concepts in developmental psychology into consideration, the author argues in favor of the hypothesis that a positive meaning and intention are concealed even in a striking negative transference: a desire for the integration of split parts of the self and a search for inner autonomy. Protected by the positive transference, the destructive reactions can be psychoanalytically investigated and transformed.
