Some definitions

It might help if a clarify what I'm talking about.

I like this definition for tranference: "A process during psychoanalysis, whereby a client attaches feelings towards the therapist that were previously unconsciously directed towards a significant person in their life, who may have been involved in some form of emotional conflict."

And I'm trying to understand how that relates to the idea of attachment in therapy. The idea is that the therapy relationship can involve an attachment a lot like the attachment of a young child to a caregiver, which allows social and emotional development to occur. That attachment can then allow continued emotional development as an adult. I feel like that describes perfectly what I experienced in therapy with my old T.
