Sample text

Well beyond our conscious will, the experience we have with our analysands accompanies us continuously, and the related emotional working-​ through is continuous, active, and intense. I shall give a brief example of the problems that emerge from the need to respect our sensory-​emotional bodily reactions and the specific time their working-​through requires. The example is taken from a turbulent period of the treatment of one of the cases we shall encounter later in the book. After some very dramatic sessions with personal attacks and many sorts of insults from the patient, I had gotten into the habit of allowing myself time for working through the state of physical chaos in which the end of the session generally left me.

Antonio begins a session one summer by saying that he is struck by the fact that his analyst is wearing sandals that reveal his bare feet. 29 Transference onto the body 29 He is scandalized by the lack of propriety thus manifested. ,” he comments. He then recounts that on his way to my office he met someone in a gray business suit with a tie: he thought that that man must also be going to a psychoanalytic session. He adds that it could be his double. In this start of a session one is struck by the attention he paid to a body peeking out and thus summoning his scandalized reaction.

Hence these hypotheses, well grounded in the concreteness of his experience, are particularly relevant to clinical experience generally. The increasingly wide-​spread interest in Bion’s thought is, I find, revealing the risk of the codification of his thinking as abstract psychologizing, whereas I believe his contribution is inconceivable without reference to clinical experience, where one is called upon to effect a dynamic fluctuation between concretization and abstraction, and to be open to new thoughts and different ways of thinking in one’s dialogue with a patient.
