From the work of transference to the transference to work

Lewis, A.J. (2000) From the work of transference to the transference to work. Analysis (9). pp. 138-149.

Abstract

The paper responds to questions on the transmission of psychoanalysis that were raised after the crisis in the World Association of Psychoanalysis (AMP) in 1988-1989. The focus is on the notion of work in psychoanalysis as a means of addressing Jacques Lacan's 'politics of the treatment'. It makes a significant distinction in the nature of work, namely in analysis and at the end of analysis. This distinction is termed a move from a work of transference in the treatment to transference to work in transmission.
