Françoise Guittard-Maury: Infrequent consultations

Do the infrequent consultations of young adults belong to the field of psychoanalysis? Do they already set in motion the play of transference and countertransference? What about the fact that the analyst accepts not to transform of this type of treatment into an analysis? Following upon Freud’s Studies of Hysteria, these interviews require and give rise to genuine work of sublimation on both sides, and thus appear as a succession of micro-analyses.
