Every therapeutic relation involves transference, but how has this concept evolved during the history of psychoanalysis? And how have the changes in the theory of transference had an effect on theories of interpretation? Most clinicians who work psychoanalytically agree that the transference needs to be interpreted, but at what moment? And what of the Lacanian critique of transference interpretation? This course will examine these questions from a Lacanian perspective, combining theoretical exposition with clinical examples.
