Many of our patients in psychoanalytic treatment introduce transference states that pull for particular countertransference acting-out. By their overreliance on projective identification, they invite us to recreate various unconscious phantasies involving paranoid and depressive object relational conflicts.

When taking the inevitable misstep toward enactment, the author demonstrates how to work towards regaining analytic balance.
