Transference: the process by which a person in psychoanalysis attaches to a therapist feelings formerly held toward some significant person who figured in a past emotional conflict.

I've been seeing Dr. Channing for several months now and have never experienced transference. Maybe she hasn't dug deep enough into my psyche, which is okay by me.

I wonder if she realizes that I've been researching psychology terms to see how they apply to my therapy. If so, is she concerned? And would she tell me if she was?


  1. I don't think she would unless she though it would add value to the "relationship" you have.

  2. Now that sounds like a relationship question to me... you sure it hasn't happened yet?!
    There's an award waiting for you at Daily Dodo.

  3. Wendy: Dr. Channing is quite subtle. That's one of the things I like about her.

    Laura: An award! Thank you!
