Example text

Freud wrote in 1919, for instance, that ‘we have formulated 33 Edna O’Shaughnessy our tasks as physicians thus: to bring to the patient’s knowledge the unconscious, repressed impulses existing in him, and, for that purpose, to uncover the resistances that oppose this extension of his knowledge about himself ’ (p. 159, my italics). Bion’s wide-ranging work advanced our understanding of K in clinical practice and, furthermore, brought about an overall shift in psychoanalytic theory by placing K in a new position where it has the same pre-eminence as the instincts of love and hate, so that instead of a duality there is posited a trio of interacting human instincts: love, hate and trying to know: L, H and K.

Consequently, although projective identification in its most extreme form is highly active, paradoxically it makes little or no impression on the observer. But if individual or group becomes less omnipotent and better based on reality, then the observer becomes aware of an emotional situation in which he appears to be participating unwittingly, and suffering disagreeable emotions as a result. Bion’s 1961 use of countertransference foreshadows the Sandlers’ concept of role-responsiveness (Sandler, 1976), and it is similar to the phenomena described by León Grinberg (1962, 1979) in his papers on projective counteridentification.

2003, p. 77) Britton describes later how Klein’s original, related concepts of projective identification and splitting were developed further, not only by Bion, with his notions of alpha function, beta elements and container–contained (ΘΗ), but also by Rosenfeld (1964) and, later, by Joseph (1989) – both of whom concentrated on the detection of the subtle actions of the patient and his or her relationships to early object relations being revived in the analysis of patients who present particular difficulties for the analyst’s stance and attention.
