PEP-Web Tip of the Day

When you hover your mouse over a paragraph of the Standard Edition (SE) long enough, the corresponding text from Gesammelte Werke slides from the bottom of the PEP-Web window, and vice versa.

If the slide up window bothers you, you can turn it off by checking the box “Turn off Translations” in the slide-up. But if you’ve turned it off, how do you turn it back on? The option to turn off the translations only is effective for the current session (it uses a stored cookie in your browser). So the easiest way to turn it back on again is to close your browser (all open windows), and reopen it.

For the complete list of tips, see PEP-Web Tips on the PEP-Web support page.

Analytic Abstinence and Preoedipal Disturbance

Robert S. Hausner, M.D.

Analytic abstinence entails a technical frustration that may have different meanings for those with primarily neurotic disorder and those with significant preoedipal pathology. It is posited that the greater the degree of preoedipal disturbance, the greater will be the tendency to experience the frustration of the technique itself as transference-laden: conflicts related to frustrating experiences in early childhood are revived owing to the abstinent form of psychoanalytic treatment. Ramifications regarding the analyst’s work-ego, countertransference, general strategic considerations, and technical difficulties are discussed.
