Example text

It is the analyst's awareness of the Page 43 patterns of behavior and development inherent in archetypal energy that allows him or her to mediate the relationship between the patient's ego and the activated archetype.  Some personal countertransference reactions to transference idealization will illustrate this.  They were discussing the brilliance of my interpretation and the general excellence with which I was handling the case.  More to the immediate point, while my countertransference reaction was somewhat intense, the imagery was strictly personal, and while my pride was exaggerated it was not numinous; that is, I was great, but not godlike.

Second, as mentioned earlier, the quality of the fantasies in the Page 40 first two instances—the one about the abusive boyfriend and the one about sexual dominance—were uncharacteristic for me but were characteristic of the patient.  By contrast, in the third example, I impulsively questioned her in an aggressive manner, felt self­righteous, defended myself to myself via rationalization, dreamed about the incident, and felt guilty about my reaction.  Similarly, archetypal contents are aroused in the countertransference and there can be discerned a purpose and direction to the process.

The analyst could not talk his patient out of this idea.  Only after this process had begun could he tolerate his patient's projection of evil onto him.  It is the analyst's awareness of the Page 43 patterns of behavior and development inherent in archetypal energy that allows him or her to mediate the relationship between the patient's ego and the activated archetype.  Some personal countertransference reactions to transference idealization will illustrate this.  They were discussing the brilliance of my interpretation and the general excellence with which I was handling the case.
