Cracking In: The Psychotherapeutic Action of Comedy

Ken Corbett, Ph.D.

The relational reach and psychotherapeutic action of comedy are examined in the opening phase of treatment with a man who had an early history of neglect and consequent neurotic isolation. Through the examination of a series of comedic enactments that cracked into the beginning phase of this treatment, comedy's animating force to defy neurotic gravity and aid in the reanimation of primal density is considered. The ways in which laughter opened into a maternal erotic transference-countertransference is further detailed, in conjunction with reflection aimed at the aggression of this comedic bond, including countertransference hate.
