Narcissistic Transference and Countertransference in Adolescent Treatment

Isaac Tylim

THE PART PLAYED BY TRANSFERENCE IN THE ANALYSIS OF ADOlescent patients remains a critical but as yet unsettled issue (Harley, 1974); (Scharfman, 1971). The contradictory and often distinctive adolescent subphases yield complex transference manifestations which call for refined techniques and therapeutic efforts (Aichhorn, 1925); (Blos, 1954), (1968); (Eissler, 1958); (Fraiberg, 1955); (A. Freud, 1958); (Geleerd, 1957), (1961); (Gitelson, 1948); (Lampl-de Groot, 1960).

The successive developmental stages in adolescence exert an important influence on the therapeutic analyst-adolescent relationship. The maturational (or developmental) aspect of the analyst-adolescent relationship makes it easier to distinguish between those situations in which the analyst is a "new" object and others in which the analyst represents an object from the past (Silverman, 1971). These developmental considerations enable us to clarify a critical distinction between the transference of neurotic adults and the transference of adolescents.
