The Dying Patient in Psychotherapy | 26th March 2022
This is a story of love and death mediated in psychotherapy. When a patient in psychotherapy is confronted with a life-threatening illness the therapeutic relationship inevitably intensifies. The work becomes time limited but the end date is uncertain. Boundaries of the analytic frame may come under extreme pressure especially when an erotic transference –countertransference dynamic emerges. A series of dreams reveals how, as analysis deepens, the pace of individuation quickens. The countertransference is revealed in drawings made by the analyst towards the end of the analysis. Theoretical and clinical material will give the background to what is hoped will be a lively discussion.
