This article reminds me that the idea of PI seems to have been introduced to explain ( or possibly justify) the existence of "countertransference" in the early years of PsychoA.

Freud had the idea that the Psychoanalyst is neutral, which often was taken to mean didn't have feelings about the P, or only had certain limited ones of wanting to be of help. But As found they had strong, & often not simply "helpful" or benevolent feelings. This led to concept of countertranference--but it was supposed (somewhat) be a mistake or loss of neutrality.

The resulting development over time of concepts like PI were attempts to understand the CTtransference, and why the A would fall into this error.

Also eventually to find way of using it to deepen or further the analysis, so that it became a positive thing, even if technical a mistake, then eventually, a necessary thing, and one that was almost crucial to making PSA progress.

Haven't read any of the PSA lit. for a while, although I read a lot while I was in grad school, and was interested in it for a while.

Do you read any of the journals, gg?
