Transference-countertransference implications in Freud's patient's recall of Weber's der Freischütz.


Based on findings in my previous work, biographical data have been linked with material presented by Freud on the interpretation of songs. His patient's parapraxis of her evocation of Agathe's aria in Act II of Weber's Der Freischütz was interpreted and discussed as reflecting the here-and-now in the session, expanding the classical interpretation of transference-countertransference data. The material suggested that both members of the therapeutic dyad were experiencing positive transference-countertransference states and that treatment was on the verge of an impasse at that moment.
