The Role of Internalization in the Development of Object Relations During the Separation-Individuation Phase

John B. McDevitt, M.D.

MANY AUTHORS—Jacobson (1964), Mahler and Furer (1968), Mahler et al. (1975), Spitz (1957), (1965)—as well as the members of today's panel (Gedo and Goldberg, 1973); (Kanzer, 1957); (Lichtenberg, 1975); (Meissner, 1971); (Spruiell, 1974) have pointed out that incorporation, imitation and identification, and introjection play a significant role in the development of object relations.

In this paper I intend first to examine a few aspects of the subphase-specific development of internalization in terms of its role in beginning the establishment of object relations.
