In this talk given at a Symposium on Counter-Transference Winnicott describes the original meaning of this clinical phenomenon, as proposed by Freud, where the analysts’ unanalyzed feelings interfere with the transference processes with the patient, and he surveys the newer meanings of the word, giving many instances that have accrued over time. Although he values some of these developments, he considers the original meaning of Freud’s to be the best use of the term.
