MEDEIROS, Eduardo Cavalcanti de  and  PEIXOTO JUNIOR, Carlos Augusto. The clinical handling of "difficult cases": heritage and relevance of Sándor Ferenczi in the approaches of Winnicott and Balint. Rev. Subj. [online]. 2016, vol.16, n.2, pp. 46-59. ISSN 2359-0769.

The aim of this article is to discuss how Ferenczi's theoretical changes and technique reformulations, which were amplified by Michael Balint and Donald Winnicott, can be taken as a possible guide to think the difficulties in contemporary clinic. In this sense, we will seek to highlight the emphasis that these authors give to regression in analysis and in a more empathetic and welcoming attitude of the analyst as an important boundary for handling with patients whose psychic suffering is not referred to the neurosis model.

Keywords : Ferenczi; Winnicott; Balint; clinic.
