Introduction

The start of a psychoanalytic treatment can be quite varied depending on the nature of the patient’s phantasies, internal confl icts, their resulting transference and projective identifi cation process, and the impact of these factors on the analyst’s counter-transference. Chapter 1 presents the fi rst twelve sessions of a Modern Kleinian Therapy treatment process. This material will show the reader how the unfolding transference and counter-transference are understood, and how important it is clinically to deal with the patient’s phantasies and anxieties as soon as possible through the mode of interpretation, analytic observation, and containment. This extensive case report demonstrates the Modern Kleinian technique of working with diffi cult cases in whatever setting, frequency, and situation they present.
