A developmental model forms the framework for the transtheoretical practice of psychotherapy. Major preoedipal and oedipal events, interfaced with significant two-person (mother-child) and three-person (father-mother- child) influences-dyadic deficit, dyadic conflict, triadic deficit, triadic conflict-are instrumental in the formation of different relationship patterns in treatment that transcend classical versus selfobject transferences. Therapeutic as well as countertherapeutic stances and strategies are elucidated.
