Defining the working alliance – 2

Ralph R Greenson (1967) Technique and Practice of Psychoanalysis

Greenson defined the working alliance as: “the relatively non-and neurotic, rational, and realistic attitudes of the patient towards the analyst … It is this part of the patient-analyst relationship that enables the patient to identify with the analyst’s point of view and to work with the analyst despite the neurotic transference reactions” (Greenson 1967 p.29)
