Example text

It is essential that this alliance should be experienced as positive and supportive and that it should be based on a ‘collaborative sharing of responsibility’, as both participants focus on the patient’s feeling, experiences and difficulties. It is also important that the therapist should be conceived as skilful as well as sympathetic and that the patient should be open, non-defensive and actively committed to the therapeutic process. (Stevens, 1998:172) But since most of us believe that insight is also a factor, even if left in the psychic field where the consciousness of the therapist is still active, we must have a go at the phobia.

What we must conclude is that the partformed ego is fighting with huge energies in the unconscious, just recently emerged—and that it is under threat from them. When Elizabeth Urban tells the parents, some time later, that the phobia represents ‘a condensation of intense emotions’, I would say, yes, that is well put. The move from a small town to London would certainly have increased the uncertainty of the ego, for it was a loss of the familiar walls and corners, and the familiar friends, which give support in crisis.

The burden of work, too, often in our culture makes it impossible for a father to be a father; but his human presence is important at this stage. I would want to know about that, and also how effective the mother feels to Ruthie, as an aid in facing the great transition. A daughter’s puberty is a test of both parents’ relation to the issue of instinct, sexuality, and the unconscious. And if there were any chance of getting some of this through to the parents I would have a go. In a primal culture Ruthie would be making a retreat right back into the world of the ancestors.
