Mother Country: Discussion of Hazel Ipp's “Nell—A Bridge to the Amputated Self”

Ken Corbett, Ph.D.

Ipp's clinical narrative is examined for the ways in which the social, as it builds the psyche, is met by the psyche as it builds the social. Ipp reminds us that no matter where you find yourself, no matter where you are going, you begin at home (as Winnicott might have it); and, although home is a mother (also, as Winnicott might have had it), it is not only a mother. Home is a mother country; hence, the psyche–social. Home is also a place from whence one leaves. How mourning makes history, and how that history is socially shaped and reshaped, is also considered, as it underscores the therapeutic action of Ipp's clinical account.
