In the opening chapter of James T. McLaughlin's book, he wrote:

In my earliest papers, my intent was to shed light on what was going on in my patients. I was trained to see impediments as lodged in the patient's psyche. Instead, as my own experience evolved, I grappled with how it often was also the analyst who impeded progress.

In his now classic 1981 paper, Transference, psychic reality, and countertransference, written in his early 60s, Jim declared, If the past 50 years of analyst watching have clarified anything about the nature of the analyst's experience, it is that transference is a matter of equal rights, both on and behind the couch.  The next 25 years witnessed a series of papers challenging psychoanalytic orthodoxies.  Often controversial within his home community of the American Psychoanalytic Association, these papers became foundational in the emerging theories underlying relational psychoanalysis.      

Learning Objectives:
1) Participants will be able to describe aspects of the history of the therapeutic application of countertransference within the American psychoanalytic traditions.
2) Participants will be able to identify theoretical antecedents to the relational turn.
3) Participants will be able to describe the functions of self-analysis.
