Sample text

For Freud (1914b) the defining features of psychoanalysis as a treatment were the centrality of transference and resistance. But most psychoanalytic psychotherapists would also claim these were central to their work, and, conversely, there is no certainty that what is called psychoanalysis accords with Freud’s criteria. e. the creation and dissolution of a transference neurosis) and positive outcome of treatment. Good outcomes are possible where the analysis of transference appears to play quite a minor part, and patients can do badly despite heroic efforts at transference interpretation.

The system unconscious and the id are equivalent, functioning according to primary process thinking, but the system conscious and the ego are not equivalent, since part of the ego may be unconscious. Equally, preconscious and superego cannot be equated. The key issue clinically is not just whether the patient is conscious or unconscious of some aspect of himself, but what part of the mind holds sway: is the patient behaving and thinking according to the primary processes; under the dictates of conscience, or adaptively?

Initially he placed the emphasis more on environmental factors, especially traumatic external events like childhood seduction, and suggested they led to the formation of symptoms in adult life. In the later drive-structural model Freud saw the internal world as primary. External events were triggers releasing inherent patterns such as the oedipus complex. This difference of emphasis continues to this day: models may be classified as intrapsychic, interpersonal or mixed. Similarly, although Freud set out to produce a mechanistic picture of abnormal mental life, as his work evolved he became more and more concerned with meaning, narrative and communication.
