Words That Touch by Danielle Quinodoz

Book Description

In her attempt to find the words that touch, Danielle Quinodoz gives a succession of illuminating examples to indicate what a psychoanalyst and her patient may experience in the transference relationship during the course of an analysis. On the basis of her clinical experience, the author points out that we all use relatively mature psychic mechanisms and others of a more primitive nature, the former being accessible to symbolism and the latter less so. However, she notes that some can tolerate the awareness of their heterogeneity even if on occasion it causes them pain, while others are rendered so anxious by their lack of inner cohesion that they are afraid of losing their sense of identity. These people particularly need to be touched by words capable of simultaneously evoking fantasies, thoughts, feelings and sensations if they are to be able to unfold their psychic freedom and creativity to the full.The subtitle A Psychoanalyst Learns to Speak reveals an author constantly in search of a language of her own, while at the same time wishing to communicate her experience as a clinician both to other analysts and to anyone who wishes to know more about psychoanalysis.
