International Journal of Psychoanalysis. XLVI, 1965: The Internalized Representation of the Object in the Presence and in the Absence of the Object. Kenneth Gaarder. Pp. 297-302.

It is useful to distinguish between internalized representation in the presence as opposed to the absence of the object. In the work of mourning, for instance, the individual must decathect that aspect of the internalized representation of the object which requires its presence but not that aspect which does not require its presence. In many cases of phobia the presence of another person is required to protect him from the feared situation. This means the individual cannot maintain an internalized representation of the needed person in his absence because negative feelings lead to destruction of the internalization. In analytic treatment there are three stages: first, the patient's not having an internalized representation of the analyst apart from the global transferences attributed to him; second, a consensus between patient and analyst but only when the latter is present; and finally, a consensual representation in the patient that exists in the absence of the analyst.
