> I've always thought projective identification was just a therapist's way of blaming the victim. You're not being abused, oh no, you're just acting in a way that "makes" the T abuse you. Just like millions of abused wives the world over blame themselves.

I suppose that a T might use this interpretation incorrectly or even as a "weapon" against the client if their own ego strength might need some shoring up. The term "transference" is also one which gets "tossed out" at inappropriate times, and perhaps too quickly in some cases.

I think they are both useful psychological constructs, but I also think that one must be open to considering multiple interpretations in order to use them effectively.
