“Identification, Introjection, Projection, and Projective Identification: Early Papers”
Presenter: Phillida B. Rosnick, PhD

Four-Session Program Beginning September 11, 2015 1:00 – 2:30pm

In this four week program we will explore the early and foundational papers written in England in the early 1940’s that extend Freud’s ideas on introjection and identification. This will lead us into the early papers on projective identification. The following papers will be read. This list is our beginning point; one or two others may be included.

– Isaacs, S (1943) The Nature and Function of Phantasy

– Heimann, P. Some Aspects of the Role of Introjection and Projection in Early Development, in King and Steiner (1991) Controversial Discussions

– Heimann, P. (1942) A Contribution to the Problem of Sublimation and Its Relation to the Processes of Internalization, IJP.

– Klein, M. (1946) Notes on Some Schizoid Mechanisms
