This chapter serves as an overview of the influence of gender within the psychoanalytic situation. It first studies how the views on the determinants of transference and its interaction with countertransference, followed by a brief look at the assumption of penis envy is common and a basic of female psychology. An outline of the relationship of gender issues and sexuality and how these are changed during development is found in the next section. This chapter ends with a discussion of technical neutrality, the possibility that there is a difference in the analyst's treatment of female and male patients, and the analytic couple and the loving couple.

Keywords:   gender, psychoanalytic relationship, transference, countertransference, penis envy, female psychology, gender issues, technical neutrality, analytic couple, loving couple
