Scabbiolo's Creative Psychoanalytic Process suggests that at the heart of transmutation in psychoanalysis is a creative impulse, an innate impulse that, when fostered and allowed to thrive, changes both patient and analyst. This impulse allows for both individuals, and their internal objects, to develop freedom to create. Scabbiolo suggests that this impulse is present in the psychoanalytic process from the very beginning and can be found in dreams, transference and countertransference, artwork and children's play.However when this process encournters trauma. there occurs negativity and a compulsion to repeat, leaving the patient and analyst stuck as they hide in fear of creating and experiencing new emotions.
This presentation will cover:
Creating from experience
The creative position integrating the paranoid-schizoid and depressive positions
The first model of psychoanalytic process
