Generally used in [[psychoanalysis]] to refer to the [[individual]]'s interaction with the [[object]]s and [[part-object]]s that constitute his or her [[environment]].[[Object relations]] [[theory ]] attempts to avoid [[Freud]]'s tendency to [[speak ]] of the [[subject]] in [[isolation ]] and to introduce an interpersonal [[dimension ]] into [[psychoanalysis]].The so-called '[[object-relations ]] [[school]]' is the majority tendency within British psychoanalysis.Strongly influenced by [[Klein]], [[Winnicott]], and Michael [[Balint]], as well as by [[Anna Freud]], it gives primary importance to the early [[relationship ]] between [[mother]] and [[child]] rather than the [[father]]-[[child]] relationship that is so important in [[Freud]]'s own writings, and has helped to produce a 'mother-centric psychoanalysis.'
Object-relations [[analysts ]] use a [[number ]] of different approaches and, whilst they share similar conceptions, do not really subscribe to a fixed [[body]] of [[theoretical ]] principles.In historical [[terms]], the group, sometimes described as the [[independent group]], developed out of the [[need ]] to find a [[working ]] compromise between the followers of [[Anna Freud]] and those of [[Klein]].
