“A Piece of Psycho-analysis”: The British Response to Later Dynamic Psychology



In 1909 Sigmund Freud wrote to Ernest Jones, a native of Britain, that

I consider it is a piece of psycho-analysis you are performing on your countrymen… you are not to say too much or at too early a moment, but the resistance cannot be avoided, it must come sooner or later and it is best to provoke it slowly and designedly. (22 February 1909, Freud, Letters to Jones)
