Example text

I would argue (and this is supported by McGilchrist) that creativity requires the participation of both the implicit and the explicit. The notion of relying primarily on one or the other mode destroys, or at least greatly restricts, creative thinking. Ultimately the right brain (largely unconscious and embedded) is unable to step back from a situation or a problem in order to examine it and apply new abstract approaches. In this case being embedded, relying primarily on intuition, affect and unconscious processes can lead to paralysis and confusion, rather than insight and creativity.

For every analysand entering treatment there is some recognition that the strategies he or she has relied on are not working. The defenses which one is clinging to no longer feel acceptable; but for many reasons, the patient cannot change. He or she feels locked into a rigid and unsatisfactory pattern of thinking, feeling and/or acting. The patient may not even be aware of what they are doing, let alone why. But they invariably feel trapped, unable to respond creatively to life’s challenges. Analytic patients do not just show up in our of¿ces without expectation or desire.

In this regard, the patient’s most important fantasy is the idea that the analyst possesses a special power to understand and inÀuence. This is the nonspeci¿c “positive” transference which is both the binding element in treatment and the facilitator of the analysand’s drive to heal and change. It is this dimension of the transference that invests the analyst’s interventions with authority and positive value. By means of interpretation the analyst offers back to the analysand a meaningful construction regarding what the analyst has come to believe about the analysand’s psychological life.
