This chapter outlines how changes in Freud’s technique to be found over the years can be accounted for in the light of changes in his theoretical premises. On a number of occasions, Freud enumerates several changes in his therapeutic technique. These changes are not simply interesting. They are important in regard to the relation they bear to the theoretical principles that justify them. The new methodological emphasis on the patient being obliged to overcome his own criticism of his free associations can be justified on theoretical grounds. Analysts are provided with fascinating examples of instances of different types of associations, of dream interpretation, and we can see how the censor stands at the gateway between conscious and unconscious—or more accurately the censors between Cs. and Pcs. The resistance was to be circumvented by the work of interpretation and by making its results known to the patient.
