About the Book

In recent decades an increasing number of psycho-analytic investigators have tried to fathom the nature and origin of the TRANSFERENCE-COUNTERTRANSFERENCE - from within. Unlike the psychiatric methods, psycho-analytic investigation of these seriously disturbed patients imposes intense stresses on the investigator - there are the primitive emotions released, the painfully slow process in which anxiety-laden changes can be attempted by the patient, and there is the constant struggle for the analyst to elucidate a pattern of significance within, at times baffling phenomena. For the pioneer, these endeavours are heroic and it is little wonder that few psychiatrists have ventured into these realms.
