Conclusions

BySamuel Eisenstein, Norman A. Levy, Judd Marmor

All of the researchers on this project came to it with a common psychoanalytic bias. All were committed to a belief in the existence of unconscious psychoanalytic processes, including resistance, defense mechanisms, the meaningfulness of dream symbolism, and the importance of transference in the psychotherapeutic process. But perhaps the most important prior conviction that they all shared was the central importance of properly timed and appropriately framed interpretations as the central factor in the therapeutic process.
