Example text

I felt severe anxiety as if I might lose a limb. This was associated with the feeling I have had at the top of the Eiffel Tower that if I put my hand over the edge it would fall off on to the ground below. This would be ordinary castration anxiety. In the next phase of the dream I was aware that the people in the stalls were watching a play and I was now related to what was going on on the stage through them. A new kind of anxiety now developed. What I knew was that I had no right side of my body at all.

On this particular occasion I was aware of the meaning of the dream as I woke or even before I woke. The dream had two phases. In the first I was in the gods in a theatre and looking down on the people a long way below in the stalls. I felt severe anxiety as if I might lose a limb. This was associated with the feeling I have had at the top of the Eiffel Tower that if I put my hand over the edge it would fall off on to the ground below. This would be ordinary castration anxiety. In the next phase of the dream I was aware that the people in the stalls were watching a play and I was now related to what was going on on the stage through them.

I would compare the patient's position to that of a drowning man who has been brought to a boat, and while still in the water his hand is placed on the gunwale and held there by his rescuer until he can establish his own hold. It follows from this perhaps, a truth already recognized, that the more disintegrated the patient the greater is the need for the analyst to be well integrated. It may be that in those psychotic patients who do not respond to the usual analytic situation in the ordinary way, by developing a transference which can be interpreted and resolved, the counter­ transference has to do the whole of the work, and in order to find something in the patient with which to make contact the therapist has to allow his ideas and the libidinal gratifications derived from his work to regress to a quite extraordinary degree.
