Tragedy and Healing Related Papers

Maurizio Pinato, Ph.D.

Translated by:
Isabella Negri

In this paper I describe the unfolding of a relational process, through the healing of a disruption, and how it results in the creation of a mutual selfobject experience. With this expression I mean an experience of restoration of the sense of self of both subjects in the analytic dyad, of their intersubjective vitality, and their shared exploratory goal (Lichtenberg, personal communication, 2005). As the relationship developed, a willingness to reapproach a relational wound was generated, and this has promoted an expansion of the dyad's explorative and healing processes. The patient's “dream talent” (her competence and skills at dreaming and using her dreams therapeutically) played a crucial role in the integration and transformation of a traumatic experience. The regulative capacities acquired allowed for a growing synchrony and intimacy in the intersubjective field.

When the body is not a love's body

I am an imperceptible stem of a flower

The incessant thunder between sky and earth

passes through me painlessly
