Transference Neurosis

Tranference neurosis is a term coined by Sigmund Freud in 1914 to describe a new form of "infantile neurosis" being described or exhibited by a client. With this term Freud made hypothesized that new forms of neuroses can emerge during the process of psychoanalysis and that a neurosis can take the form of the client "transferring" their feelings for a past relationship (i.e. their father) to a male therapist. At this point he theorized that this therapist/client relationship becomes the most important relationship for the client and will result in the client re-enacting past conflicts and other feelings.
