To the Multiple, Intersubjectively Elucidated Meanings of Freud's Playground: A review of The Play within the Play: The Enacted Dimension of Psychoanalytic Process by Gil Katz. New York, NY: Routledge, 2014. 185 pp.

Peter Kaufmann, Ph.D.

In The Play within the Play: The Enacted Dimension of the Psychoanalytic Process, Gil Katz suggests that ongoing enactments between analyst and patient represent a significant dimension of every psychoanalytic treatment. In using the term “enactment,” Katz is referring to how patient and analyst actualize aspects of their unconscious processes through the actions they perform in the treatment relationship. Applying Loewald's concept of the interpsychic or the connection between the unconscious processes of therapist and patient, he maintains that patient and therapist enact patterns of interaction—the play within a play—that reflects how they have activated one another's unconscious processes. In Katz's view, these enacted patterns provide a rich source of information about the patient's central unconscious conflicts.
