Visiting Scholar Weekend: On the special nature of Kleinian transference interpretation, and why it is essential to analytic cure”

April 27 @ 1:30pm - 3:30pm EDT

Rachel Blass presents “On the special nature of Kleinian transference interpretation, and why it is essential to analytic cure.”

The idea that transference interpretation plays an important role in the analytic process is a familiar one. Underlying the London Kleinian approach is the idea that it is not only essential to the process but that only transference interpretation can bring about cure of an analytic kind. To appreciate this view, one must consider the unique nature of analytic cure and the limitations of other forms of intervention, including and especially other forms of interpretation of unconscious processes, in attaining it. It will be suggested that transference interpretation, as understood and developed by the Kleinian approach, moves beyond promoting awareness to actively denied unconscious ideas, and thus allows for actual change and integration of the unconscious fantasies of the inner world. Brief clinical vignettes will be presented to illustrate these ideas.
