Erotic Transference and Countertransference brings together, for the first time, contemporary views on how psychotherapists and analysts work with and think about the erotic in therapeutic practice. Representing a broad spectrum of psychoanalytic perspectives, including object relations, Kleinian, Jungian and Lacanian thought, the contributors highlight similarities and differences in their approaches to the erotic in transference and countertransference, ranging from love and sexual desire to perverse and psychotic manifestations. Erotic Transference and Countertransference offers ways of understanding the erotic which should prove both useful and thought-provoking.

Transference and Transcendence presents in systematic form Becker's understanding of human existence as a balance of competing paradoxical psychodynamic forces. According to Becker, connections exist between such therapeutic concepts as low self-esteem, alienation, denial, and the theological category of sin. Based on an expanded view of transference dynamics in which human beings seek to draw power for living from external objects, Becker's work posits that people have this kind of relationship to God as well. His ideas concur with the Psalmist's: the human heart longs for completion in a true and living God. Becker's social scientific point of view does not attempt to prove this God's actual existence. Rather, it demonstrates that the "God" of everyday life is a projection of the power of social institutions. The attachment to "Gods" as the only adequate transference object for mature spirituality and personal growth is socially functional. Tempering though Becker's work is, this study suggests that we may find certain "intimations of transcendence" in counseling. Whereas there is in the human heart that panic disguised as reason whose ultimate manifestation is in a "denial of death," Becker's work, as well as that of Yalom, Lifton, and Kubler-Ross, suggests that it might be possible to incorporate death awareness as an ally in living. Pastoral and psychological counseling pursued from a Beckerian perspective, supplemented especially by materials from grief therapy, enables therapists to bring the immediate awareness - and acceptance - of mortality into the clinical work.

Using the Transference in Psychotherapy centers around two dominant themes: the "old" vs. the "new" models of transference, and the role of transference in psychotherapy. As background the book provides an historical overview of transference, countertransference, and the therapeutic alliance. A number of detailed cases are provided, graphically demonstrating how transference is addressed in psychotherapy and briefly focusing on projective identification and enactment. This book is a must-read for both students and mental health professionals at the early stages of their careers, and a useful reference for more experienced professionals.

Second Revised EditionThe universal phantasy of having a twin originates in our earliest relational experiences. This book is about twins and twinning processes. The existence of an actual twin, alive or dead, may be experienced as an embodiment of the phantasy of having a twin, with developmental consequences. Twinning processes in twins lead to the creation of an internal twin relationship that is enduring. The twin relationship may be at the narcissistic end of the spectrum leading to an enmeshed twinship, or it may be a more mature object relationship. All twin relationships will be manifest in the transference relationship with the analyst. The twin transference has been largely neglected in the psychoanalytic literature, to the detriment of our understanding of dynamic processes in twin patients. In this book, case material is used to explore the nature of the twin transference relationship and the necessity of analysing the twin transference, as well as maternal and paternal transference relationships.

Psychotherapy: An Erotic Relationship challenges the traditional belief that transference and countertransference are merely forms of resistance which jeopardize the therapeutic process. David Mann shows how the erotic feelings and fantasies experienced by clients and therapists can be used to bring about a positive transformation. Combining extensive clinical material with theoretical insights and new research on infants, the author traces erotic development back to the parent-child relationship, drawing parallels between this relationship and the therapist/client dyad. Individual chapters explore the function of the erotic within the unconscious, pre-Oedipal and Oedipal material, homoeroticism in therapy, sexual intercourse as a metaphor for psychological change, the primal scene and the difficulties of working with perversions.

This book describes, defines and demonstrates the clinical applications of transference and projection and how they are used by psychotherapists as 'mirrors to the self' - as reflections of a client's internal structure and core ways of relating to other people. There is an emphasis on understanding transference as a normal organizing process that helps individuals make meaning of interpersonal experiences, and on how to respond effectively to it in the day-to-day practice of counselling and psychotherapy.

Also available in an open-access, full-text edition at While C. G. Jung had a natural intuitive understanding of the transference and countertransference, his lack of a "coherent method and clinical technique for working with transference and his ambivalence and mercurial attitude to matters of method," have, in the words of therapist and Jungian scholar Jan Wiener, sometimes left Jungians who are eager to hone their knowledge and skills in this area "floundering and confused." Her aim in this important book is to lay the groundwork for the development of a "more contemporary Jungian approach" to working with transference and countertransference dynamics within the therapeutic relationship. Her work is also informed by knowledge from other fields, such as philosophy, infant development, neuroscience, and the arts. In The Therapeutic Relationship, Wiener makes a central distinction between working "in" the transference and working "with" the transference, advocating a flexible approach that takes account of the different kinds of attachment patients can make to their therapists. She develops her own concept of the transference matrix, a model that honors one of Jung’s core beliefs in the development of a symbolic capacity as an essential task of psychotherapy, but at the same time acknowledges that a capacity to symbolize can only emerge through relationship.

Transference and countertransference, the essence of the patient/analyst relationship, are concepts so central to psychoanalysis that, to our minds, they transcend theoretical orientation and, thus, can be seen as the unifying focus of psychoanalysis. This book describes work involving the transference and countertransference.
