Sample text

In the past, I have pointed out the teasing and rationing manner in which she is relating to me. ” There was a degree of frustration inside of me and possibly in my tone but the essence of what I said was an interpretation about us and how we were being ignored by her statement.

As a result, the nature of the transference and its projective identification-Â�based elements can easily contaminate, damage, or cloud the analyst’s ability to think and learn about the patient. Bion (1959, 1962a, 196b) described the need of the infant to be able to tolerate frustration and loss. Hopefully, the lack of a good object is thought about and mourned, so that there is something to hold onto mentally. Knowledge forms a bridge between absence and the return of the good object. If this ability is lacking or if some severe conflict with love and hate has damaged this knowledge-Â�based coping mechanism, then there will be a frightening and devastating bad experience of self and other, of the world as an unbearable place of loss, persecution, and collapse.

Due to the excessive use of projective identification with associated interpersonal and interactive aspects of transference creating a pull, invitation, or seduction process, the analyst is often left operating within a split of his own, feeling either love or hate for the patient and corrupting the analytic quest of knowing or understanding. This makes it difficult to feel confident or clear about subsequent interpretations and thus even easier to succumb to a variety of enactments. Regarding projective identification, Mawson (2011) sees an important progression of theoretical and clinical work from Bion’s ideas to other, more contemporary Kleinians such as Michael Feldman (2004, 2009) and Betty Joseph (1989).
