Tip: To sort articles by Rankā€¦

PEP-Web Tip of the Day

You can specify Rank as the sort order when searching (it’s the default) which will put the articles which best matched your search on the top, and the complete results in descending relevance to your search. This feature is useful for finding the most important articles on a specific topic.

You can also change the sort order of results by selecting rank at the top of the search results pane after you perform a search. Note that rank order after a search only ranks up to 1000 maximum results that were returned; specifying rank in the search dialog ranks all possibilities before choosing the final 1000 (or less) to return.

For the complete list of tips, see PEP-Web Tips on the PEP-Web support page.

Figures of Understanding: The Process of Image Subjectification

Maurizio Pinato, Ph.D. and Anna Moia, Ph.D.

Translated by:
Isabella Negri

The “process of image subjectification” is a way to explore clinical micro-events. This process lends visual force to new ways of understanding systemic disturbances, variations, and emerging experiences taking place on the clinical stage. The aim of this article is to provide some indications as to how sensory skills can prevent developmental opportunities from disappearing. As a premise, we outline some basic systemic concepts—state, intentionality, and agency—to appreciate the role we give to the therapist's agency. Then, we describe the process of image subjectification, integrating it with the following dimensions: the synergy between this process and LeDoux's theory of mood congruence, the role of image subjectification in the processing of procedural memories, and Thelen and Smith's work about timing that supports the importance we give to the therapist's “readiness.” Clinical examples are given for each of these dimensions.
