A Despairing, Repetitive Scream for the Loss of the Body Electric

Doris K. Silverman, Ph.D.

The author discusses Judy Pickles's case description using an object relations/attachment perspective. She identifies the patient as representative of a disorganized/disoriented insecurely attached individual whose traumatic experiences are repeated through enactments with her analyst. Using Racker's concept of concordant and complementary transference-countertransference configurations, she elucidates the problematic relationship experiences suffered by this patient both in her old relationships with her father and maternal grandmother and in her current relationship with her analyst.
