INTRODUCTION 13 Overcoming autistic defences, internalizing the feelings that emerged from a frozen state, and reaching a healthy depressive position (M. Klein, 1935; Alvarez, 1992) can be revealed by different, premonitory signs. Chief of these is the beginning of the patient’s self-analysis and his attempts to become more independent from the analyst. Other signs might include the awareness of his gratitude and, in the analyst’s countertransference, a feeling of being empathetically attuned. The therapeutic process can be considered terminated when the emptiness previously experienced by the patient has been transformed into the absence of the object and the emotional coldness has given way to feelings connected with the working-through of mourning.
One tended to preserve and shield the identification with the object and the other to lose significant identifications as a consequence of the terror. As in socially pervasive traumas like the holocaust or genocide, patients affected by early traumas lost the identifications with their family members and, at the same time, valuable parts of their selves. The withdrawal into the self represented a defence but also led to the loss of precious identifications. Situations of loss provoke great anxiety in patients with autistic capsules since they are sensitive to re-experiencing the same feelings of panic attached to painful past experiences.
This absence of human warmth is projected into the analyst, and the danger is that the analyst’s answers might be devoid of emotion and reflect this coldness. For example, the cold ambience that prevails as a result of the obsessive rituals might become chronic and paralyse the analyst’s emotional reactions. The patient creates this atmosphere in order to protect himself from profound human relationships. He tends to keep the analytic situation static since it represents a special space that is relatively quiet and where he can find refuge from outside relationships.
