Based on analysis with adolescent girls and young women, the author revisits and updates the essence of the analytic relationship between the psychoanalyst and the “young girl”. Alerted by a prolonged period of bisexuality and the force of collapsus between shame and guilt, C. Chabert describes the effects of transference on the analyst’s body, and the variability of traces of this transference. This variability allows the analyst to be able to « with[stand] the journey through depression and the confrontation with displeasure, without which, there cannot truly be analysis! ».
