Our finding that the Kleinians gave twice as many interpretations as analysts from the other three groups was striking, and we questioned Kleinian and ex-Kleinian analysis about this clear-cut result. We were told that, indeed, Kleinians in training are taught in their supervision to intervene actively and frequently. While our study did not address the question of what difference the differences made, we inquired informally as to what effect Kleinian analysts thought the frequency of intervention might have on the patient.

It seems to me that there is a parallel between transmuting internalization and the classical concepts of identification and identification with the aggressor which, in turn, can be viewed as part of the defensive armamentarium that are converted into self structure. I would also like to raise the question as to whether the Kleinians and self-psychologists are dealing with the same mental phenomena in the Kleinian concept of projective identification and the self-psychological concept of self-object.

Another result pertained to the degree of certainty and conviction with which the interpretations were offered. Our findings clearly indicated that the prototypic Kleinian and Kohutian interpretations were offered with convic- 24 Chapter 2 tion and certainty, whereas in 30 percent of the classical and Kernbergian interpretations, the interventions were stated with an element of doubt or in the form of a question. Several of our raters independently, without the aid of statistical computations, noted the difference also.
