Example text

Many sessions were the same—monotonous and difficult to describe in symbolic terms. For a considerable period, analytic work took place mainly within me, in the form of both containment of transference messages and analysis of the emotional changes in my countertransference. It was possible to work out these elements only by my own inner work, taking into account the vicissitudes of the relationship between my own internal objects and what the patient expressed. These patients, who had reached apparent adulthood and managed to integrate within the community, intermittently experienced identity oscillations.

These were responsible for profound, incomprehensible anguish in the patient. Although often these patients say that they have always suffered from incompleteness and feeling undefined, they consider this as being a psychic characteristic and are unable to understand the causes. The fact that they cannot recognize this particular psychic structure makes them feel (and seem) superficial and rigid subjects incapable of emotional relationships. In the same way, they are unable to explain to themselves the situations of anguish they experience during moments of depersonalization and derealization.

The relationship with the analyst becomes cold, sterile, and crippling. When under stress, these disaffected patients are inclined to somatization, because their psychic organization wants to avoid psychotic anxieties since they cannot express them in words and so contain the underlying fantasies. Anxieties are expressed through their bodies in a pre-symbolic way. According to McDougall, the defence mechanism used in “disaffectation” is that of “foreclosure”, according to which fantasies, thoughts, perceptions, or psychological events are eliminated rather than being considered as causes of psychic pain.
