Patient's resistance is something to be broken down so that the unconscious complex could become conscious. This chapter explores the Types of resistances. At first it was thought that a resistance was inherently undesirable and an obstruction to the progress of therapy. The analyst's objective was therefore to urge the patient to overcome it so that the affect could become conscious or become integrated with the rest of the patient's personality. The importance of resistance, greatly developed by psychoanalysts, was a powerful support for Carl Jung's assertion that they be taken 'seriously'. Just as resistance was at first thought to be a characteristic of patients, the faults of analysts then became overemphasized. The concept of counter-resistance was an important new step in understanding, for the analyst's interventions or failures to intervene may be considered in relation to the resistance phenomena.
