Warmed by the fires of the unconscious or burned to a crisp: Clinical and theoretical considerations
Guest Presenter: Allan Frosch, PhD
Chair: Kenneth Winarick, PhD
In this presentation I talk about the relationship or link between unconscious and conscious material. When the link is optimal we are warmed by the fires of the unconscious so that what we say and do has meaning – it is alive. When the link between conscious
and unconscious is too close we are in danger of being burned to a crisp. The present is the past and the world of consensual reality pales in comparison to the emotionally charged unconscious fantasy pressing for discharge. An extended case vignette is used to illustrate the links between past and present as they unfold in a patient’s life and between analyst and patient.
