    • Abstract:
      In a letter to Carl Jung in 1902, Sigmund Freud wrote, "the cure is effected by love." Indeed, I believe, like Freud, that every therapy is a love relationship of a sort and that the analytic work is an act of love. But how is this accomplished in the case of perversions, since they are essentially the antithesis of love and intimacy? Among the greatest challenges such patients present for the analyst are how to humanize those who dehumanize and how to teach them to love. This paper presents the case of Cain, a man who learned to love in his analysis, but whose very love resulted in the need to terminate. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
