April 5, 2024 — Dissociation and the use of therapeutic action

[22 pages]

*The mid-term class evaluation will be conducted during this session. Please use these questions to facilitate your discussion: Midterm Evaluation Questions

Bromberg, from a relational perspective, focuses on the place of dissociation in working with past trauma. He writes in 2008 that therapy addresses, “ the growing ability to play safely with something that has so far existed only as a dissociated shadow of past trauma … the transformation in analytic treatment of unthinkable “not-me” self-states into enacted here-and-now events that, in the form of safe surprises, can be played with interpersonally, compared with the analyst’s subjective experience of the same event, and become part of the patient’s overarching configuration of “me.”

How do we move from enactment to play, as previously unknown aspects of the patient surface in treatment?
