March 29, 2024 — Paradox and Repetition—Reframing the past traumatic event

[34 pages]

How central is repetition in psychoanalytic treatment? Drawing on Freud’s initial contributions to the repetition compulsion, Russell writes, in 1988, “It is as if things cannot be real, and the patient will not feel psychotherapy means anything, until the treatment situation becomes so much like a dangerous part of the patient’s past that there is in fact a real risk of a repeat of the past.” (p.8) How do we learn to recognize and respond to the emotional intensity of reenactments? How do we remain both engaged and reflective with the patient?
