Percorsi di trasformazione nella cura analitica [Transformative Pathways in the Analytic Cure] by Francesco Mancuso Borla, Roma, 2006; 190 pp; €22

Review by:
Maria Grazia Fusacchia

Francesco Mancuso, author of Transformative Pathways in the Analytic Cure, here gives expression to his stimulating theoretical and clinical reflections; from these we can guess how his intuitions on the transformative pathways in the analytic relationship derive from the vicissitudes of his own internal course of formation and transformation as a psychoanalyst.

His text originates from several already published works, here reconsidered apres-coup, which stimulated questions and problems concerning the modalities of including as part of the transference the patient's ‘foreign bodies’— split-off parts which could not be represented because resulting from the confusion of tongues — as an aspect of the process of the author's transgenerational identification with Ferenczi (1933). More specifically, in this text Mancuso intends to reconsider how to get hold of and understand the patient's unconscious and perverse relational dynamics which could creep into the analytic cure and paralyse it.
