Out of the Night Kitchen and Into Clinical Practice: Response to Commentaries

Frances Thomson-Salo, Ph.D. and Campbell Paul, M.B., B.S.

In reply to the commentaries by Susan C. Vaughan, Teresa Russo, and Dimitra Bekos on “Understanding the Sexuality of Infants” we concur with Vaughan’s noting, in her playfully creative response, a relative absence from the psychoanalytic literature of sexuality, even now, of the bodily realities of infants and parents in the 1st year of life. Teresa Russo and Dimitra Bekos in exploring the relevance of our paper for the work of an infant therapist challenge us to think further why the bodily sexuality of infants is also relatively absent in accounts of infant observation, and in clinical work, both in a transference/countertransference dimension and in descriptions of technique.
