This paper examines sources of resistance to the analyst’s entering into and developing a necessary and appropriate relatedness to the patient. The elements of two major theoretical approaches, namely contemporary conflict theory and selfpsychology, that interfere with the analyst’s comfort in acknowledging his or her feeling involvement with the patient are examined. A case discussion, drawn from a recent American Psychoanalytic Association meeting is used to demonstrate the absence of a relational perspective in an analysis of 15 months duration.
