You wrote: "I wonder if Dr. Klein would comment on the kind of issue you raise about therapeutic mishandling of sexual transference in which therapists effectively teach clients by the therapist's example to fear their feelings, to confuse them with actions, and therefore, in effect, attribute to clients the therapists' (own projected?) expectation that sexual feelings will not be manageable if allowed into consciousness for the sake of practical discussions."
I hope Dr. Klein will comment on therapists confusing a client's talking about feelings and expectations for acting out itself -- as if talking directly is itself an unconscious acting out. It appears some therapists' practice includes interpreting what is not sexual as sexual, and interpreting what is sexual as acting out!
