Extra info for A Primer on Working with Resistance
It will be only as the patient confronts the reality of what the therapist does not give him, MASTERING RESISTANCE BY WAY OF GRIEVING 31 and comes to terms with that, that he will be able to appreciate and to take in all those things that the therapist does give him. HOW DOES WORKING THROUGH THE TRANSFERENCE INVOLVE RELINQUISHING THE DEFENSES? The therapeutic work requires of the patient that he make his peace with the fact that the therapist is neither as good as he had hoped nor as bad as he had feared.
In other words, anything that serves to protect the patient (whether the ego or the selO against the experience of anxiety and/or pain fuels the patient's resistance- and must ultimately be worked through before the patient can find his way to health. THE CONCEPT OF RESISTANCE 15 The patient's need to deny his anger, his need to be angry instead of sad, his need to be depressed (in order not to feel, more acutely, his actual pain), his need to speak in a monotone, his need to keep the therapist at bay, his need to be always in control, his need to be confused (in order not to know)- all speak to the patient's defensive need to protect himself against anxiety and/or pain.
On the one hand is the work to be done; on the other hand is the patient's opposition to doing that work. The conflicted patient is a defended patient is a resistant patient. We can think, then, of the resistance (as it gets played out in the treatment situation) as speaking to all those resistive forces within the patient that interfere with the analytic process, all those resistive forces that impede the patient's progress in the treatment, all those resistive forces that oppose the patient's movement toward health.
