This is probably somewhat off-beam: but being utterly uninformed about
clinical concepts, though I can imagine a definition, I'm vague about the
implications involved in your mention of "resistance". Could you please
give me a reference to the material in question (page numbers in the 1955
book, perhaps?) so I can see what, if any, connections there might be to
that weasel concept in Organization Development, "resistance to change"?

Many thanks,
