A close examination of and reflection upon an essential chapter from Anna Freud’s classic --The Ego and the Mechanism of Defense -- evokes the realization that the quintessential core of her consideration of the defense of Identification with the Aggressor constitutes an integral part, in a variety of permutations, of the conceptualizations of defensive dynamics as articulated by Melanie Klein, Herbert Rosenfeld, Wilfred Bion, Esther Bick and Frances Tustin. In his presentation, Dr. Theodore Mitrani teases out and casts a focal light on the topic in an attempt to delineate analogies and differences between these Kleinian and Post-Kleinian versions and Anna Freud’s original formulation as they refer to differing models of the mind.
