Adventure in the Outdoors—Its Importance in the Development of an Adolescent Boy

Alexandra M. Harrison, M.D.

ABSTRACT

This exploration of how the analyst works uses a 15-year-old boy's description of an adventure in the outdoors as the starting point for a sequence of associations which led first to a passage from a Wordsworth poem and then to memories from the analyst's own childhood. The related themes of rite of passage and adolescent mourning are elaborated.
