Enactment as Therapeutic Hand Grenade: How Bursts of Emotional Honesty Can Get a Stuck Treatment Moving Again: Discussion of Holly Levenkron's Paper Related Papers

Judith Guss Teicholz, ED.D.

In my discussion of Levenkron's article, I consider ways of understanding the patient's therapeutic progress that were not highlighted by the author. Adding my own criteria to Levenkron's definition of enactment, I suggest that what the author labels as enactment might be seen as a last-ditch but successful effort to get patient and analyst out of a stuck and painful place. I explore the interplay of confrontational and nonconfrontational interventions in contributing to cure, and I suggest placing a greater emphasis than did the author, on the intersubjective contexts out of which the patient's troublesome behaviors emerged.
