The Affective Experience of the Analyst in the Extra-Analytic Moment

Janet Rivkin Zuckerman, Ph.D. and Lisa Horelick, PSYD

This exploration of the extra-analytic moment focuses on the analyst's affective experience of encountering her patient outside the boundaries of the consulting room. Two complex interactions are presented in which the analyst is challenged to confront known and unknown aspects of herself and negotiate her next move. The authors discuss the value of examining oneself beyond the traditional boundaries, and highlight the potential for personal and professional growth in moments when the analyst's fallibility and humanity are unwittingly revealed. In allowing the unpredictable to become less of an unwanted event and more of an opportunity to express that which makes us human, our analytic work is enriched.
