Resistance has been a vital element of psychoanalytic psychotherapy since Freud, traditionally conceived of as a hindrance to the patient's use of the analyst's interpretation. Nevertheless, in this presentation, James Tobin, Ph.D. re-conceptualizes "positive resistance" as an important moment in the analytic relationship when the patient claims identity components that exist outside of the analyst's epistemology and conceptualization. Dr. Tobin portrays a notion of progressive "change" in which the patient is perceived by self and other as mysterious, enigmatic, and complex, thus marking a necessary transition of intersubjectivity.
