Pliable Media as Transitional Space: From Psychotic Indifferentiation Toward The Construction of Meaning in Schizophrenia.

J Am Psychoanal Assoc 2018 Oct;66(5):837-860

Clinical material from the treatment of a highly destructive schizophrenic patient is used to demonstrate the role and function of therapeutic mediations in promoting transformation and symbolization. Use of the Squiggle Game as a therapeutic mediation is shown to sustain the therapeutic process and to facilitate working through of the obscure and complex dynamics commonly seen in the treatment of psychotic patients. The Squiggle Game presents a first transitional space entailing both the concreteness of psychosis and the potential for symbolization provided by psychoanalysis. Read More

Entering One's Own Life as an Aim of Clinical Psychoanalysis.

J Am Psychoanal Assoc 2018 Oct;66(5):883-911

The historical development of psychoanalysis has demonstrated that the aim of clinical work can change as the patient population changes. One of the main tasks of psychoanalytic working through today is to help difficult patients trapped in imitative dynamics and "never-to-be-born selves" enter a life of their own. Particular emphasis is given to activating a body-mind relationship, catalyzing emergence from the unrepressed unconscious, and constructing space-time parameters in relation to the most primitive and undifferentiated emotional experiences.

Emotional Regulation in Women with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Depression: Internal Representations and Adaptive Defenses.

J Am Psychoanal Assoc 2018 Aug;66(4):701-741

Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) presents challenges in differential diagnosis and treatment. Complicating diagnosis is that its symptoms overlap with those of depression. This study applies psychoanalytic concepts to understand emotional regulation (ER) in women with CFS and/or depression. Read More

Assembling Justice: Reviving Nonhuman Subjectivities to Examine Institutional Betrayal Around Sexual Misconduct.

Authors:
Katie Gentile

J Am Psychoanal Assoc 2018 Aug;66(4):647-678

While some colleges have adopted bystander intervention and restorative justice practices to address sexual misconduct as a community issue, psychoanalytic institutes facing crises of sexual misconduct have typically relied on the tried-and-true tactic of identifying the neoliberal individual as the sole site of trouble. Successful strategies used in colleges can be applied to the psychoanalytic setting by focusing on institutional betrayal. This systemic, community-based approach decenters not only individual bodies but human subjectivities. Read More

Spatial Translation and Regression in Dreams: The Nicholas Young Phenomenon.

Authors:
Leon Balter

J Am Psychoanal Assoc 2018 Aug;66(4):619-645

The Nicholas Young phenomenon involves an immediate shift in dreams to more regressive mental functioning whenever, in the manifest ideational content, the dreamer or protagonist crosses a topographical boundary or threshold (spatial translation). This phenomenon thus furthers the regression typical in dreams. Eight examples of the Young phenomenon are presented. Read More

Memory Slip: Stage Fright and Performing Musicians.

J Am Psychoanal Assoc 2018 Aug;66(4):679-700

This paper discusses stage fright as seen primarily in classical music performers. A confluence of narcissistic sensitivities, developmental issues, shame dynamics, physical injury and pain, and terrors pertaining to both psychic and bodily disintegration can fuel anxiety reactions in many people but hold particular relevance for the performing musician. Two classical music performers who struggled with stage fright are discussed: one was in treatment with the author; the other is the author herself, reflecting on her own performance anxiety as revealed through her analysis and her countertransference to her patient.

Playing in the Darkness: Use of the Object and Use of the Subject.

Authors:
Steven H Cooper

J Am Psychoanal Assoc 2018 Aug;66(4):743-765

Play in the context of the patient's sense of absence, loss, and compromised capacities for symbolization can be a link between unsymbolized experience and greater capacities for representation. Winnicott's concepts of play evolved as one of the ways that analysts translate unconscious and unrepresented experience. For many patients who have experienced absence, the analyst and the analytic setting are subjected to the patient's unconscious efforts to destroy and negate meaning and relatedness. Read More

인지-인본주의적 정신 역동들 : Sidney Blatt의 이론적-철학적 업적 (Congnitive-Humanistic Psychodynamics : Sidney Blatt's Theoretical-Philosophical Legacy).

The Erotics of Knowing: A Neglected Contribution to Analytic Erotism.

Authors:
Adele Tutter

J Am Psychoanal Assoc 2018 Jun;66(3):407-441

An erotics of knowing is posited that comprises embodied aspects of psychological and emotional closeness, and derives not from transference dynamics but from psychological and emotional intimacy-both component and consequence of the analytic process. The experience of knowing and being known is invested with erotism via its interpenetrative and interreceptive aspects; regardless of gender, to know the other is to enter a hidden interior "space" that represents that person's embodied inner world. Yet the interrogation of the intrinsic relationship between knowing and loving is stunningly absent from the psychoanalytic literature. Read More

Twos and Threes: Musical Chairs in Female Psychic and Social Life.

J Am Psychoanal Assoc 2018 Jun;66(3):443-472

Jockeying for position in the context of a threesome is a major preoccupation in female social behavior, and in female inner experience, throughout the life cycle. This oscillating phenomenon can be thought of as "twos and threes." While such configurations are often understood in terms of sibling rivalry or social influences, the focus here is on underlying female triangular dynamics. Read More

Disillusioning Gender.

J Am Psychoanal Assoc 2018 Apr;66(2):243-261

Illusions are not errors but erroneous beliefs motivated by wishful ideas and fantasies. To disillusion gender is to challenge the traditional Freudian construction that splits masculinity and femininity into agency versus passivity, the first with power, the second without. Disillusioning femininity as impotent frees up potency and power as generativity. Read More

Illusionment and Disillusionment: Foundational Illusions and the Loss of a World.

Authors:
Alfred Margulies

J Am Psychoanal Assoc 2018 Apr;66(2):289-303

One can only be disillusioned if once one lived within illusions-and so disillusionment is always after the fact ( après coup or nachträglich), as illusions come into view even as they are crumbling within. With a crisis of disillusionment-or existential disillusionment-one falls away from a coherence of meaning, revealing a system of intertwined fundamental illusions that had always been lived within and implicit, part of one's being-in-the-world, and that now seem broken, strange, and uncanny. This way of being that one recognizes only retrospectively may be called "illusionment," a state of being apprehended in the very process of its falling apart. Read More

The Psychotic Part of the Personality: Bion'S Expeditions into Unmapped Mental Life.

Authors:
Avner Bergstein

J Am Psychoanal Assoc 2018 Apr;66(2):193-220

The psychotic part of the personality is seen as a multidimensional mental realm that is fully comprehensible only through intuition and tolerance of approximations, transience, and the notion of infinity. It is suggested that a major differentiating factor between the psychotic and nonpsychotic parts of the personality is the capacity to tolerate the infinite complexity of the human mind. With the use of mathematical concepts, Bion tries to describe the state of mind required of the analyst who endeavors to tread on psychotic territories of the personality. Read More

Illusion as a Basic Psychic Principle: Winnicott, Freud, Oedipus, and Trump.

Authors:
Stephen Seligman

J Am Psychoanal Assoc 2018 Apr;66(2):263-288

Illusion can be viewed as a creative engagement with the world, and as a central psychic motivation and capacity, rather than as a form of self-deception. Winnicott and other Middle Group writers have understood integrative, imaginative illusion as an essential part of healthy living and psychosocial development. As such, it emerges and presents itself in a variety of ways, in transaction with the realities that support or degrade it. Read More

When Fathering Fails: Violence, Narcissism, and the Father Function in Ancient Tales and Clinical Analysis.

J Am Psychoanal Assoc 2018 Feb;66(1):7-40

Manifestations of failures in both symbolic and actual flesh-and-blood fathering reveal the inescapable role played by the father's unconscious transmissions in the ever present triadic matrix. Perelberg's crucial distinction between the murdered narcissistic father and the dead symbolic father suggests the problematic internalizations that fail to uphold the paternal law required for oedipal resolution. Three father-child narratives derived from classical literature and mythology are presented in order to elucidate significant unconscious paternal fantasies pertaining to lethal rivalry and neglect of the child's otherness.

A Note on the Indelible.

Authors:
Newell Fischer

J Am Psychoanal Assoc 2018 Feb;66(1):93-102

An eighty-year-old man reports a recurrent nightmare involving a gummy substance being stuffed into his mouth and, despite his anxiety-driven efforts, being unable to remove it. A narrative of his neonatal years is developed and it is speculated that this nightmare is a rekindling of his very distressful breast feeding experience-an experience memorialized in his earliest pre-representational memory. Rich clinical reports of preverbal infant trauma help elucidate the earliest infant-mother dyad. Read More

(How) Can We Write about Our Patients?

Authors:
Sarah Ackerman

J Am Psychoanal Assoc 2018 Feb;66(1):59-81

The ethical underpinnings of writing about patients are explored, the question of how best to undertake the writing of case reports being subordinated to a more general question about the ethics of choosing how or whether to write. An unsolvable paradox is encountered here: that we need to write or speak about our clinical work in order to conceptualize and understand the work we are doing, but that in the very gesture of doing so, we are breaking a fundamental bond with the patient. This conundrum is viewed from a number of vantage points. Read More

Finding Freedom: Exploring the Relationship Between Agency, Motility, and Aggression.

Authors:
Tom Wooldridge

J Am Psychoanal Assoc 2018 Feb;66(1):41-58

Assistant Professor, Psychology Department, Golden Gate University.

After an overview of the opposed concepts of freedom and psychic determinism, and of the compatibilist reconciliation between the two that is most appropriate for psychoanalysis, the importance of agency as a psychoanalytic idea is considered. In particular, two ways in which the term agency may be used are examined: agency as fact and agency as experience. The former refers to the degree of relative freedom an individual possesses from "inner" constraints, whereas the latter refers to the experience of oneself as having an active impact on the self, other people, and/or the world.

The Specter of the Primitive.

J Am Psychoanal Assoc 2017 Dec;65(6):945-977

Traditional psychoanalytic theories of development hold that the adult neurotic can regress, or has already regressed, to the childhood arrests and/or fixations in which his pathology originated. More recent critiques have called this possibility into question. It is unlikely that anyone can roll back the additions and modifications of lifespan development in a full-fledged return to the needs, wishes, and anxieties of childhood. Read More

The Masculine Vaginal: Working With Queer Men's Embodiment at the Transgender Edge.

Authors:
Griffin Hansbury

J Am Psychoanal Assoc 2017 Dec;65(6):1009-1031

Turning away from the conspicuous phenomena of transgender experience, with an eye toward locating and illuminating the transgender edge in cisgender, this paper explores the relationship between men and the Vaginal, both material and fantasized. Positing the Vaginal as a counterpart to the Phallic allows a delinkage of vaginal psychic and embodied states from the strictly female so that, like the Phallic, they can be accessed by people of all genders and sexes. This concept goes beyond the conceptual to the fleshy, embodied experience of many transgender men, who live in whole, partial, and/or temporary "female" bodies. Read More
