Melanie Suchet, Ph.D.

This article explores the interesting, yet underinvestigated, phenomenon of unconscious communication. Newer psycho-analytic theories, which have expanded on the centrality of the analyst's subjectivity as well as the patient's experience of that subjectivity, have opened up the analytic space to explore the complexity of transference-countertransference dynamics. Detailed clinical process material is provided to determine if a coconstructed unconscious dialogue ensues, or if, in fact, the intrapsychic dynamics of patient and analyst are on independent yet parallel tracks. Several current theoretical issues are raised, such as how one-or two-person metapsychological frameworks can influence clinical process; the complex nature of enactments; the use of self-disclosure; and the possibility of unconscious communication.
