"I am convinced that you're going to frequently be able to again me up, yet I shall additionally gladly settle for correction. " So wrote Freud in his first letter to Jung in 1906.

Example text

Hence, the patient defends against the process that makes meaning possible, not against specific content. Two major clinical problems emerge. How does one address defence against the process that makes meaning possible? And when does one use traditional forms of intervention which presume meaning? Concrete patients sometimes speak in a way that allows the analyst to interpret in a content oriented way. The analyst usually breathes a sigh of relief: analytic work as he/she understands it can finally take place.

I find it my style to work actively with dreams and of course that encourages the patient to bring more dreams. From this way of working, I have found many instances in which the dreams seem to bypass the defensive, entrapped, concrete state of mind of the patient, and as it were to “speak” to the analyst as if pointing the way forward. For example, Ms C had a dream in which: She told a couple, who were asking for directions, how to reach their destination, by going up a hill and then turning right at the top of the hill.

Sometimes it seems that these denigrating encounters are hate- or envy-fuelled, but at other times I have come to feel that the entropic forces towards meaninglessness are not so intentional, but just, as Sandler suggests, that they press relentlessly and impersonally to prevail. Occasionally I have considered whether my guilt over being away and thus causing pain, perhaps even re-traumatising my patient, might impede my ability to be the fully receiving, containing object whom she needs. I think that the analyst at times can be so overwhelmed by her own guilt in causing such a painful repetition of loss that only in retrospect can she fully see how her guilt prolonged the concrete situation.
