Rumpelstilzkin in the Analytical Situation

Julius L. Rowley


Clinical material is presented in which occurred the naming of a patient by the analyst. The meaning of this naming to the patient is discussed and linked to the general purpose of psycho-analysis: a making known of the unknown, a revealing and naming of the unknown.

An attempt is made to understand the mode of discovering the unknown. The technique in this case was further linked to a basic pattern of behaviour of the patient, this very pattern being responded to in a certain way and the effect utilized to discover the patient's conflicts. The possible importance of different ways of handling the demands a patient may make on the analyst is touched upon.
